Holiday Labor of Love
Although there are many families in the Charlotte community who need assistance year-round, it is especially rewarding to offer a food distribution program for underserved families during the holiday season. The Holiday Labor of Love does just that. Holiday joy comes with food boxes, turkeys, pies, water, grocery gift cards, fun giveaways, and more. In addition to our food distribution event in December, each year we provide holiday gift bags for women living at the Salvation Army Center of Hope. This year’s holiday gift bags were sponsored by Microsoft, helping us to provide 100 gift bags to women in need.
Our 2021 Holiday Labor of Love event reached 93 families (376 individuals). Our 2022 event was held on December 17, reaching 95 families (418 adults and children). Many thanks are extended to the Mecklenburg County ABC Board for allowing us to use their headquarters parking lot and facility for our event!
Our partner agencies are key to success. By partnering with organizations in the community who work with underserved families, it allows the MBFF to reach those in critical need of food.
“No family should ever have to worry about where their next meal is coming from - and yet too many children and their families go hungry every day here on the Westside.”
- Hannah Beavers, Executive Director at Freedom Communities
