MCB Young Lawyers Division
2013 Thanksgiving Community Service Project

 

 

Many families in Mecklenburg County need a little extra help this holiday season.  In an effort to help those in need, the MCB Young Lawyers Division (YLD) is working in conjunction with Thompson Child and Family Focus (TCFF) to provide Thanksgiving meals to families in need. 

 

TCFF is a non-profit organization that provides educational services to families and children who face a range of challenges, from abuse and neglect to those who simply lack the means or tools to provide quality care and education.  Learn more about this wonderful organization at www.thompsoncff.org.   

 Thanksgiving Meal

You can make a difference in a struggling family's Thanksgiving.  Law firms and individuals can sponsor a family (or families!) by providing the ingredients for a home-cooked Thanksgiving dinner.  A typical sponsorship costs between $75 - $125 (depending on family size).  Times are tight, and if you cannot afford to sponsor an entire family, smaller donations may be pooled to sponsor a family or used to purchase necessities such as roasting pans, etc.

 

Meal guidelines will be forwarded to sponsors, and generally include a protein, starch, vegetables and supplies. Meals must be delivered on Mon., Nov. 25 at TFCC's Wendover location between 12 p.m. - 5 p.m. or on Tues., Nov. 26 to TCFF's Clanton Road location between 12 p.m. - 4 p.m..  The location of delivery will vary depending on the family assigned.  If you want to help but have a conflict, sponsors can elect to provide funds for a MCB/YLD Community Service Committee member to purchase the dinner and deliver it to TCFF.

 

To sponsor a family, or for further information, please email the YLD at CLTThanksgiving@gmail.com or contact Joe Nelson at 704/998-5184 or Anna Holloway at 704/373-8930.
