Men’s Shelter of Charlotte

Feb 22, 2017

FullSizeRenderWe couldn’t have asked for a better way to kick off our 2017 Epic Outreach effort than serving lunch to over 180 men at the Men’s Shelter of Charlotte. They operate Mecklenburg County’s only two year-round emergency shelters for men experiencing homelessness. Basic needs are met, including a bed, meals, restroom/shower facilities, laundry, and personal hygiene items. A host of on-site services is also available including a volunteer-run Housing and Employment Resource Center (HERC), substance abuse and mental health services, peer support, medical respite, and bi-monthly visits from volunteer dentists. A special thanks to “Champ” for his incredible instruction, guidance and big heart.

Loaves & Fishes

Dec 16, 2016

Loaves & FishesA cold morning indeed, but our hearts were warmed by the incredible outpouring of support we saw throughout the day. We had the opportunity to pick up donated food items at two local schools, Stoney Creek Elementary and Huntingtowne Farms Elementary. The amount of food donated by the families of the children at those schools was extraordinary. We were truly in awe. What an honor to play a small role in that effort.

Nov 8, 2016

ejManaging Director, Ed Doughty, and Client Services Associate Jason Dimitriou just returned from an 8-day trip serving in the Dominican Republic with Wine To Water, a North Carolina based non-profit that aims to eradicate the global water crisis. While there, they worked in a factory where they learned the ceramic filter making process. They then distributed the filters to locals in a remote mountainside community. In addition they were able to pass out over 130 hygiene kits as well as teach a WaSH program (Water, Santitation and Hygiene).To learn more about this extraordinary organization that is very near and dear to us here at Epic Capital, or to help support their efforts, please visit them at http://winetowater.org



Society of St. Andrews

Aug 17, 2016

FullSizeRenderWhat a FUN morning, “gleaning” watermelons with the Society of St. Andrew at Barbee Farms in Concord, NC. Gleaning is the act of collecting leftover crops from farmers’ fields after they have been commercially harvested, and giving them to the poor and impoverished. We gleaned about 5,000 pounds of melons which has already been delivered to Hickory Grove Baptist’s food pantry, to soup kitchens/pantries in Kannapolis, and to a low income apartment community in East Charlotte. For more information or to volunteer with the Society of St. Andrew – Carolinas, contact Jean Siers or visit their website: http://endhunger.org/north-carolina/
