Outreach Board HELPING HANDS CHALLENGE
One of our supported beneficiary organizations, Helping Hands, has outgrown it’s food pantry location in downtown Charlotte. In December, Outreach Board voted to donate $1000 toward their plans to build a larger, more people-friendly facility so that they might sustain their level of services to the community.
Helping Hands has already made arrangements to purchase a one acre parcel of land, have received zoning approval and site plan approval from the City of Charlotte Planning Commission. They are focused on raising the funds necessary to construct a 5000 square foot building designed specifically for helping our community and hope to be in by next summer.
Outreach Board would like to offer a challenge to the rest of our congregation to make donations to what we consider a very worthy cause. For each $10 donated we will add a piece to a custom designed puzzle that is on a card table near the giving tree. Donations may be made in the Sunday offering. Please mark your donation HELPING HANDS CHALLENGE, or look for specially marked envelopes.
