The Charlotte Rescue Mission is seeking homemade cakes, pies, cookies and other sweet treats to help feed the homeless as part of the agencys annual free holiday meal for the communitys homeless men and women recovering from addiction.
Donors are asked to drop off homemade desserts at the rescue mission Christmas Eve and Christmas morning.
Theres no better way to cap off a delicious meal than with a tasty dessert, says the Rev. Tony Marciano, executive director of the Charlotte Rescue Mission. We want everyone who comes to the Rescue Mission on Christmas Day to receive a real taste of home.
The Charlotte Rescue Mission served over 1,000 meals last Christmas Day and hopes to feed even more this year, he said. It is located in uptown at 907 W. First St., near the intersection of West First and Cedar streets. Bring desserts through the glass doors at the second building on the left.
The Charlotte Rescue mission provides a free 90-day Christian residential program for men and women who are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol and are predominantly homeless. Details: 704-333-4673 (HOPE). Mark Price
