Help out in your community by volunteering or donating. (PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY BEFORE SIGNING UP)

We would like you to know that all donations are truly appreciated however the most important part of our weekly visits to these homeless people is the interaction and conversation. They have a voice that longs to be heard even if that is as far as it goes. Our homeless friends need to know that there are people out there that have not forgotten about them, that still care and want to help them in some way.

DONATE: DRY GOODS ARE ALWAYS NEEDED (CANNED FOOD, SOUPS, PASTA, SNACKS, ETC.) SO PLEASE DONATE OR CONTACT THE EVENT HOST(S) FOR A DONATION PICKUP. THANK YOU!

VOLUNTEER: COME OUT AND HELP OUR HOMELESS BROTHERS AND SISTERS by supplying them with food, water, and clean clothes on the streets of Downtown STL. Meet us at 7pm on the corner of Locust and 15th St. We will organize the carpool to hand out the supplies we have gathered. Safety first: We always stay together in groups, travel by car together, and have a good rapport with the people we help.

We welcome your help. Please comment below and specify if you intend to bring any supplies, so we can make sure all the essentials are covered. Keep in mind that you are not obligated to bring supplies in order to participate. We are a loving group of people helping other people who are in need so please bring an open mind and an open heart.

PLEASE CONTACT LeQuisha WITH ANY QUESTIONS.
