Since the beginning of our journey [November, 2017] we have given out more than 2100 care packages within the city and that number increases weekly. It is hard to understand the great struggles of keeping personal belongings safe and secured when you do not have a home to call your own. The daily struggle of holding personal property and having a spare change of clothes is often over looked and comes as a great frustration to our friends. We work hard in hopes to bridge this gap, by offering items that support the upkeep of personal hygiene as well as ones sense of self-worth.
