It’s great to see South End businesses develop non profit foundations as a way to help meet the needs of the Charlotte Community. Flores & Associates has done just that with the creation of the HandsNFeet Foundation that serves to bring added warmth to our neighbors in need throughout the Greater Charlotte region through the distribution of outerwear accessories.
The HandsNFeet Foundation serves the Charlotte area homeless families with gloves and socks will have obtained and donated roughly 20,000 pairs of gloves and socks in their first full year as a non-profit organization. The donated gloves and socks are distributed through agencies such as Crisis Assistance Ministry, Urban Ministry Center, Charlotte Rescue Mission, A Child’s Place and Serve Charlotte’s Homeless.
On Tuesday, Oct 2nd from 5:30pm-8pm, HandsNFeet will organize 5000 pairs of new socks they have obtained from Thorlo. The socks are not paired in the boxes so they are seeking volunteers to help aid with this process. They are looking for roughly 40 volunteers and if you are interested please see the flier below for details and who to contact.
