How GROUPS can help:
Hold a supply drive! We are always in need of household items, some of our greatest needs are listed below:
- toilet paper
- paper towels
- laundry detergent pods
- breakfast and individual snack items
Cook a meal! Grab some co-workers, friends or family and let’s get cooking for the families at HHOC!
- Our guests so appreciate when they come “home” from the hospital for the day and there is a meal prepared for them. Often the meals give families time together to just unwind.
- For more details on providing a meal click the red “prepare a meal” button below.
Make Goodie Bags for HHOC guests! In extreme emergencies guests need even essential items. An extra toothbrush, a snack, or note of encouragement goes a long way!
- Individual and groups can prepare Goodie bags off-site or at HHOC.
Fulfill our wishlists! We have wishlists at Amazon and Target and you can select Hospitality House of Charlotte as your charity on Amazon Smile .
