• Common Cupboard distributes food for 640 Thanksgiving meals


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Over the weekend the Common Cupboard, the food pantry of Indian Trail-based nonprofit Common Heart, distributed food for 640 Thanksgiving meals Saturday throughout Union County, Matthews, Mint Hill and southeast Charlotte.

    Organizers said they start collecting donated turkeys at the beginning of November for their Great Turkey Countdown.

    "We are helping people that would not have a Thanksgiving dinner without us, and so we help out our community and it is important that those who have share with those who do not," said executive director Keith Adams.

    After packing up the food, those 400 volunteers then delivered it to families in Matthews, Mint Hill, Southeast Charlotte and throughout Union County.
