When building anything from the ground up, one must always expect the unexpected. The most important part to remember is to make the most out of the situation. With the community opening delayed by a few days, the Camden Southline team decided to use their time wisely by donating it. The team headed to the Men’s Shelter of Charlotte to help prepare and serve lunch to those in need.
“The Men’s Shelter of Charlotte (MSC) is one of many homeless services agencies serving people in the Charlotte community who are experiencing homelessness and are considered chronically homeless (meaning they’ve been homeless often or for an extended period of time and they have an disabling condition, often mental illness). In fact, MSC provides safe shelter and supportive services to about 200 chronically homeless men each year.”
The day the Camden Southline team headed over to lend a hand, 195 men were served. The group helped prepare lunch in the kitchens and serve said food to the men that were in attendance that day.
With life drastically changing for many people everyday, homelessness is something that is on the rise in many of our cities in the United States . Working for a company that provides homes for many, it means a great deal to Camden to be able send our employees to assist those without homes. It is our hope, that with a little care and love, each person can better their path in life. Sometimes all it takes is a little personal attention and good people doing good things on their own accord.
With Camden Southline now open, and the employees now very busy assisting residents and potential residents, we are very appreciative of the time they have given and we thank them for representing Camden so well in their free time.
