Homeless Stand Down, Bagged Lunch Project.
Tony K’s , 841 W. Bagley Rd., Berea, Ohio (MAP)
Once again Single Volunteers is helping support the Homeless Stand Down at the Cleveland Auditorium by donating several hundred bagged lunches which will be distributed to many of the participants at this huge annual event . Join us for a fun night and good company at this popular night spot while helping those less fortunate than you.We'll plan on doing some icebreakers and drinks and food will be available.
Volunteers are asked to help not only by working on the assembly line we’ll set up, but also by donating the food that we’ll be using. If your last name ends in:
A through D, we’d like to ask you to bring a loaf of bread
E through I, a large jar of jelly
J through N, a jar of peanut butter
O through S, some 100 % juice boxes or pouches
T through Z, some individually wrapped snacks.
If you can afford it, please feel free to bring extra ---we’re going to try to make 400 bagged lunches this year. Single Volunteers will provide the bags, napkins, etc. Unopened and unused products will be donated to St. Augustine’s HungerCenterin Tremont.

Background on the Homeless Stand Down. Held at the Cleveland Convention Center this year on Saturday, January 26th, this large annual community service event for the homeless in our city is a collaborative event between the Free Clinic, The Health Care Alliance, The Case Western School of Dentistry, the Cleveland Barbers College, InterAct and a whole host of other community organizations. The Stand Down is envisioned as a day of "amnesty" for the homeless where they can come in and relax for the day, enjoy a hot meal, and avail themselves of the free services offered. Last year, approximately 1600 homeless attended. For more information, please click HERE
UPDATE: Wow, what a great turnout. Thanks! Since we have so many people coming, I'm going to combine this with another project. I have several bags of shampoos, soaps and toothpastes that we can divide up into individual hygiene kits that will be distributed at the Domestic Violence Center. As a matter of fact, if you have any of those little hotel or travel sized sized soaps, shampoos,deodorants or toothpaste, bring them along! We can use them!
