After discovering that some in Charlotte are getting arrested for sleeping in their cars in private parking lots, one local car dealership decided to step in to help.
Last week, they announced on Facebook that they would be allowing those who are in need to park their car in their lot.
Their post talks at length about why they are opening their lot:
“We have been praying and asking God what to do with some extra space we have had for years…We know that some families are struggling and in a tough situation. Yea whole families sleeping in the car…We will provide a safe place to park at night. As this service to the community develops we will look to help these families in other ways but right now a safe place is what we can offer…”
Since first making the announcement on the 23rd, the post has gone viral after being picked up and shared by news agencies around the country.
