Sponsors needed before Thanksgiving

The Charlotte nonprofit A Child’s Place needs sponsors for almost 800 homeless children before Thanksgiving.

The group assists homeless children attending Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. They’ve received requests to assist 1,122 students and their parents for the holiday, but as of last week, had sponsorships for only 333.

The issue becomes more important during the holidays, when children don’t have access to school meals and may go hungry at home. Sponsors are encouraged to purchase grocery store gift cards for the families, who can then buy what they need.
