In this time between our last event and our next fundraiser we are focusing on gathering as many items as we can to distribute at our July event and we thought we'd share some of it with you, including a sneak peek at something we're working on.
A little while ago we reached out to CamelBak to see if they would be willing to donate some of there reusable water bottles for our homeless friends. They came through with 20 reusable bottles. Thank you so much to CamelBak for their help. It will mean the world to our friends this summer.
A few months ago Earth Breeze reached out to us and offered to supply us with 500 packs of their eco-friendly laundry detergent sheets. Well those 500 were gone in just 2 months and so Earth Breeze went and DOUBLED the amount. We now have 1000 packs of sheets to distribute to the homeless communities we serve. That means 60,000+ loads of laundry. These sheets have been a huge hit at events. Thank you so much to EB for these donations.
And last but not least, here is a peek at our supply bundle prototype.
For a long time now we have been working to find a way to distribute bundles of supplies to each of the people we serve. It's all good to give people the items they need to survive, but if they cannot carry those supplies with them then they can't use them when they need them most. That is why we are working on finding a cheap, simple, and useful way we can bundle all the items that someone on the street might need in an easy to carry way. This is just a prototype mostly due to monetary constraints but we hope with the generous donations of our supporters, that we can make this a great tool to help in our mission.
That's it for the April 2021 update. Thank you to everyone who has donated and supported our mission. It's because of you that we can continue to help people in need.
