HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Every day, some of our Team Members conduct outreach to those who are currently living on the streets. An important part of our outreach efforts is distributing hygiene kits. These tote bags will help our outreach team carry more hygiene kits with them. They may also be used by our Team Members on their regular shifts in the community to carry supplies, or to carry donations and other items from one place to another. We do know this -- we can never have enough reusable bags!

DESCRIPTION

Downtown Streets Team is a work experience program that is aiming to end homelessness through the dignity of work while simultaneously beautifying our communities.

Using only an old T-shirt and a pair of scissors, you can create a tote bag that will be used by members of our organization to carry hygiene kits and other necessities.


ITEMS NEEDED

Old t-shirt(s), sharp scissors
