We recently received a request for help from Roof Above (formerly Urban Ministry Center and Men's Shelter of Charlotte). With the closing of the Tryon Shelter because of COVID concerns, homeless guests have been relocated to a hotel where better social distancing protocols are available. At this location, 175 lunches are needed each day to feed these guests.

Each lunch consists of the following:

  • Bagged Sandwich (guidelines provided)
  • Fruit
  • Snack
  • Water

If broken down into units of 25, Yoga for Life students and friends could provide the requested lunch for a day with just 28 volunteers. If anyone wanted to provide more than one lunch category or bring 50 of something, even fewer volunteers would be needed.

We would likely select a Sunday or a Monday morning, which would allow even students with full time jobs to participate. If there is interest, I will create a SignUpGenius to organize donations. My family will be happy to staff a collection site and make the drop-off once contributions have been gathered.

So, what do you think? Are you able to help? Wouldn't it be great to do some good IN our community AS a community?
