Blankets Across Charlotte Welcomes You
We are a grass roots organization geared to helping the homeless with basic essentials
Hi. My name is Alija and I am in the fourth grade. I started a blanket donation drive to help keep the homeless warm in Dec 2016 and since that time, I have collected and delivered over 500blankets. I also noticed that there was HUGE need for toiletries and small food items as well as other basic essentials. I began collecting everything I could think of to help them. During the warmer months , blankets are not always needed so Alijas Blessings in a Bag was started. I , with the help of my grandmother and the wonderful caring people in the world, have been able to collect and distribute 200+blessing bags. If we lived in a perfect world homelessness would not exist. Until then, I will help others as much as I can . Please help me take my drive around the world to help our friends in the streets get the essentials needed. You can donate blankets, clothes, shoes, toiletries, food items or monetary donations that will be used to purchase above said items. I also have a Amazon Wish List where you can purchase and it will ship straight to me. Please reach deep in your hearts and help the ones who are unable to help themselves.
What We Do
We take donations of blankets, hats, gloves, socks, non perishables for the homeless and take them uptown to distribute to those in need. We do not know or understand everyone's story but they all have one. Helping one person may not change the world but it could change the world for one person. The best place to find a helping hand is at the end of your own arm. Do not pass by a man in need for you may be the hand of God to him. Proverbs 3:27
Be the Change you wish to see in the WORLD
I am called to help the poor, the hungry, the thirsty, the hurting, the abused, the broken
Always help someone. You may be the only on who does
