When & Where
Hands On Charlotte & Friendship Trays
Hands On Charlotte is a nonprofit volunteer service organization. We promote volunteerism and direct community service to meet Charlotte's most critical needs. Our mission is to strenghten our community and enrich lives by mobilizing a diverse corps of citizens in direct, volunteer service.
Friendship Trays generally delivers more than 600 meals daily to elderly, handicapped, and convalescing people who are unable or greatly restricted in their ability to prepare or secure meals and who reside within the area we can reach with our corps of drivers. Deliveries are at the lunch hour but the meal is a full one, more like what many people are accustomed to for dinner.
