Our #ConeWeed fundraising made well over $20,000 – which has already been put to work assisting local families in need with a FULL Christmas! Your generous support will allow HopeMatch.org to help over 100 local families with what we raised. We are also excited to announce that a major grocery store has reached out and wants to donate HUNDREDS of bags of food for those in need as part of our event. The Food Lion will provide us with up to 500 bags of food as part of their #FoodLionFeeds program!
We’re now ready for the next step and we’re calling it #ConeWeedGivesBack which takes place this Sunday (December 10 from 1-5pm) at our Fire Station 2 on Beatties Ford Road (Huntersville Fire Station 2). This is where we will put into action everything we’ve done thus far, and in unique ways. It will be a fantastic event to bring the family to. You will have the opportunity to donate various items that we are collecting for those in need. You will also have the opportunity to assemble new bicycles that we will be donating, assemble hygiene kits, make kindness rocks and pack food bags for delivery! We are partnering with Caterpillar Ministries, Cookies For Kids’ Cancer- Charlotte, NC area, HopeMatch.org
, Hope House Foundation, Food Lion, Barnette Elementary PTO , Smoke and Go Catering Services, The Vinyl Pi, Huntersville United Methodist Church, Loaves & Fishes Charlotte Mecklenburg, and many more to make this a huge success!Please come out, we hope to see you at: Cone Weed Gives Back!
