Donations needed to "Fill The Pantry" and feed homeless addicted men and women
homeless and those in need, by donating food to fill our pantries at
Rebound and the new Dove's Nest. Local residents can help by dropping
off donations at either location between now and August 12th.
"The homeless are vulnerable and hungry throughout the year, not just
during the holidays and winter months." says Rev. Tony Marciano,
Executive Director of the Charlotte Rescue Mission. "A life-altering
change for someone in need can begin with just one meal."
The Charlotte Rescue Mission prepares over 400 meals a day. And even
more meals will be served as women and children start to fill up the
new Dove's Nest. Both Rebound and Dove's Nest will be looking to fill
their pantries with large, warehouse club sizes of kitchen staples
such as flour, cooking oil, coffee, tea, salad dressing, and sugar.
The Rescue Mission is also looking for items like paper towels and
toilet paper. For a complete list of items needed at both facilities,
log onto charlotterescuemission.org.
Charlotte Rescue Mission's Rebound men's program is located on 1st
Street in uptown Charlotte, diagonally opposite the Carolina Panthers
practice fields. The new Dove's Nest for women is located on West
Boulevard. Items can be dropped off anytime during business hours from
