As the holiday season approaches, the LH Hair team is once again stepping up to make a difference in the Charlotte community. The LH Hair Annual Food Drive, which runs from November 1st to January 31st, is an inspiring initiative aimed at combating hunger in the area. This blog sheds light on the event and the pressing issue of hunger in the Charlotte region.
Hunger and Homelessness Statistics
Charlotte is a vibrant city with a booming economy, but beneath the surface, there is a growing crisis of hunger and homelessness. Since COVID-19, the numbers of hunger and homelessness have been rapidly increasing, making every year’s annual food drive even more important than the last. The statistics are staggering: approximately 485,000 people in the 24-county region live at or below the poverty level. Even more concerning is the fact that over 42% of those at risk of hunger are children and seniors, equating to 155,000 children and 54,000 seniors.

The LH Hair Annual Food Drive is not just an event; it's a testament to the power of the community coming together to combat hunger.
