First Christian Church Charlotte- at the Dilworth Soup Kitchen

Dilworth Soup Kitchen

(Volunteer Opportunity)

During COVID-19, the soup kitchen has been providing to-go meals from 11 am -12:30 pm on Mondays and Fridays as well as providing food to Block Love, the Urban Ministry tent city, the Charlotte Mecklenburg School System, and other partners. We’re looking for volunteers to help put together to-go meals and we’re calling on anyone able to sew who can make homemade face masks for guests. Ongoing.

Little Free Pantry

(Donation Opportunity)

The Little Free Pantry is now accepting food donations during COVID-19. Please give what you can to those in need. We can especially use whole fresh fruits like bananas, tangerines and oranges, apples, and bags of cherries. Of course, all kinds of nonperishable foods are welcome and needed, too. Ongoing.

 

Three ways to help:

– Share food directly by picking up more than you need and placing your items in the Little Free Pantry on church property.
– Donate food by dropping off at the church office during regular office hours, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., Monday thru Friday.
– Make a financial donation at www.easytithe.com/fccclt (click on General Missions, then the subfund for Little Free Pantry) OR mail a check to the church, 1200 East Boulevard, Charlotte, NC  28203 – please mark your check “Little Free Pantry.”

Project Outpour Showers Volunteer Opportunity 2021

Project Outpour

(Volunteer Opportunity)

Project Outpour is a non-profit, community mission to provide free mobile shower access to homeless persons without adequate or convenient access to shower facilities.  Providing a place for a shower, taken for granted by so many of us, supports an individual’s basic health and human dignity.

Project Outpour sets up its mobile shower unit in the FCC parking lot every Tuesday between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.  Four volunteers are needed each Tuesday, in two shifts.  Volunteers will help with set up, show guests available toiletry items and gather them for their use in a bin.  Volunteers will show hospitality and keep things running smoothly.  All supplies are furnished by Project Outpour.  Strict COVID protocols will be in place and enforced.  All work is outside and standing up; volunteers should dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes, and a mask at all times.
