    The Mecklenburg County’s District Attorney’s office is working with Pat’s Place, a child advocacy group in Charlotte to transform one of their waiting rooms for children.

The Holiday Season is often known as the season of giving. Despite coinciding with the NFL regular season, Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams took time out from his schedule to help fight hunger at Walter G. Byers Elementary school on Tuesday.

Williams joined volunteers from Bank of America to help feed the families of students at the school Tuesday afternoon. The volunteers distributed food, bagged fresh produce and assisted in selecting holiday staples to about 200 families.

Tuesday’s event was a part of the “Give A Meal” program. From every $1 donated from Nov. 18 through Jan. 10, the Bank of America Charitable Foundation will contribute another $2, matching up to a total of $1.5 million.

Donations can be made here.
