HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Our neighbors living in supportive housing are among the most vulnerable to COVID-19. We are in need of non-perishable food donations, so that they may remain safe and healthy in their homes

DESCRIPTION

Want to help seniors experiencing homelessness during COVID-19? Assemble kits for our community's most vulnerable; seniors who are currently experiencing homelessness or transitioning out of homelessness.

When you are next out grocery shopping, please consider filling your basket with a few extra food items and/or cleaning supplies to help our most vulnerable neighbors stay healthy.

Food support bags can be assembled in cardboard boxes or reusable grocery bags. These kits will be distributed directly to those most in need.

Feel free to get creative with these kits! Handwritten notes boost morale and let our neighbors know they are not alone.
