About this Collection
We associate the months of November and December with hearty meals, and family gathered around the dinner table for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Unfortunately, there are many American families that do not have the same luxury and suffer from food insecurity and poverty. In fact, approximately 16% of families in the Charlotte metro area do not have constant access to healthy meals. The South Charlotte Chapter of Jack and Jill worked together to provide healthy meals to those in need. Junior Teens got to work raising funds and collecting needed items during the holidays for those in need. Members received donations from neighbors, friends, family members, and /or purchased items to be given. These efforts were continued in the new year as the South Charlotte Chapter's Foundation initiated a drive to bring in additional items , specifically food and diapers, as the needs of the community grew as a result of the pandemic. The combined efforts resulted in over 3,000 items being donated to Hearts and Hands Food Pantry.
