Father’s Day Wallet Drive

This Father’s Day – celebrate a father, donate a wallet!

Father's Day Wallet Drive

Men’s Shelter of Charlotte remembers while its clients are experiencing homelessness – it is not an identity. The men are fathers, sons, brothers, husbands, friends and play many roles in our community.

To honor those roles and remember our common humanity, gently used and new wallets will be collected for clients of Men’s Shelter of Charlotte. To support programming for men experiencing homelessness and who are ready to transform their lives by enrolling in our programs, $20 or more inserted into the wallet is suggested.

When to donate your wallet-

Friday, June 13 – Monday, June 16, 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. daily

Where to donate wallets –

Men’s Shelter of Charlotte, 1210 North Tryon Street, side entrance

Carson Dean, Riley’s Dad & Men’s Shelter of Charlotte Executive Director

Father’s Day for me is a reminder of how special a gift my son is to me.  Being a father is a joy and a tremendous responsibility.  Having my son look up to me and love me unconditionally has humbled me in so many ways.  My son’s need for guidance, accountability, and someone to act goofy with has taught me so much about being a father.  I only hope I’m half as good as a dad that I know my son will one day be for his kids.  This Father’s Day I’m making a gift to Men’s Shelter of Charlotte in Riley’s name because he understands there are so many fathers in the shelter who want nothing more than to be dad to their own children.

Amy Tribble, Director of Development, daughter of Paul Shafer (1913-1992)  

Though my father has been deceased for nearly 22 years, I still miss him terribly and frequently long for his guidance.  The heartfelt letters of encouragement and support he wrote to me my Freshman year in college are filled with insights I still hang on to.  How lucky I was to be loved and supported so unconditionally.  My father was a role model who made a habit of practicing random acts of kindness long before the phrase was coined.  He was one of the most thoughtful, generous people I have ever known.  This Father’s Day I will make a contribution to Men’s Shelter of Charlotte in his memory and in the spirit of giving the same type of unconditional support that was given to me to men who are experiencing homelessness.
