DONATE A TENT TO FLATTEN THE CURVE FUNDRAISER
February 9, 2020
For people sleeping rough on the streets, the message "stay at home" lands differently. The COVID-19 crisis puts those without a place to isolate at a significantly increased risk of both catching the illness themselves, and spreading the illness to tens, or hundreds, of others. People experiencing homelessness often have little choice but to utilize public spaces and keep in close proximity with each other for safety, shelter, and community. The need for tents and food within the homeless community has never been greater. Please consider donating so we can distribute these essential items, which will help flatten the curve for all of us.
