Our Help for the Homeless - Helping Those in Need
They say "If you see something, say something" but actions are much more powerful than words.
From seeing it in the streets to working with people and hearing their angst, homelessness is not something that has gone away or will be anytime soon, unfortunately. It not only affects single men and women but families and many consisting of more than one child, sometimes newborns.
We cannot simply turn our heads, look away or ignore those in need and hope that the city will help or the person behind us will support them. We should all support each other. As my father always says to my siblings and me - all for one, one for all!
This page is to help fund the efforts of myself, colleagues and volunteers who will be creating Care Packages for those in need, starting with the ones on the streets and train stations. The packages will consist of many basic need items for men/women/families such as(but not limited to):
