Charlotte resident Hiwanna Chattman is always looking out for others, even at the cost of skipping a meal or two.
"My son just told me on yesterday he knows I skip meals just to make sure he, and sometimes our neighbors, can eat," said Chattman. "This gift card will help me buy food for us and maybe someone else as well."
Chattman was given the gift card when Food Lion Feeds partnered with Electrolux and Crisis Ministries today to help give needy families in the greater Charlotte area the perfect holiday fest: a $50 Food Lion gift card, a new oven range and a slow cooker.
"The first meal I make will be whatever my baby wants," said Chattman. "We are going grocery shopping this afternoon."
Crisis Ministries identified approximately 126 families who could use the new appliances and meals just in time for Thanksgiving. The new appliances couldn't have come at a better time for the single mother.
"My stove at home has two working burners," said Chattman. "And I have to unplug the oven to turn it off. It's just too dangerous to cook on, but it's all I have."
With the donation from Electrolux and Food Lion Feeds, she and many other families can now cook her home cooked meals with ease.
