Charitable Drive

Please consider organizing a charitable drive

with your friends, family, church, school group, work organization, book club, or any other group, to collect any of our needs, or make a collective cash donation so that we can care for our friends experiencing homelessness. We ask that you let us know about any charitable drives that you are intending on running. This allows us to be prepared for an influx of donations, to relay what items are most needed, and to have the appropriate staffing to assist you. Plus, we would love to give your group a shout-out via social media!

Please email us if you are intending on running a charitable drive for donations.
