‘Crutch Christmas Tree’ for Homeless

Charlotte’s Samaritan House shelter erected a “crutch Christmas tree” Thursday to celebrate the unique segment of the homeless population it serves.

For 6 years now, Samaritan House has displayed our Crutch Tree in front of our facility. This year we have chosen to decorate it in red to honor the Charlotte Fire Department and MEDIC as well as fire departments and first responders from all over. Charlotte Fire along with MEDIC has responded to our facility many times over the years and each time they show our guests in need true compassion and professionalism each and every time.
Samaritan House and our staff and guests would like to wish the Charlotte Fire Department, MEDIC and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department a safe, joyous and happy holidays.
