Provide Warmth To Our Homeless
During the cold winter months, our street family need help staying warm without shelter. There are two ways you can help share the warmth:
Come join us for Share the Warmth every Thursday, 6:00pm-9:30pm
Volunteers are needed to help prepare hot cocoa and other items for the night and to go out and share the warmth through friendship and sharing!
We also need volunteers to make a hot soup or stew each week!
The amount we need would be the equivalent of a 10 gallon Igloo container or large posole pot. This would be how much we generally need to feed the number of street family we serve these evenings. Note: If you would like to donate prepared meals, you must be able to bring the items between 6-7pm to WANIF. WANIF is not available beforehand to pick up meals.
You can literally envelope our family members in warmth by donating clothing and bedding! Are you part of a group, like a church, student or service group, club, or other organization? Help us by raising donations as a group!
Items needed include coats, socks, hats/caps, warm gloves, thermals, sweatpants, sleeping bags, tarps, pet warmers, and hygiene items. Food and beverages, as well, are needed, such as sandwiches, travel bags of coffee, tea, cocoa. and soups.
**Any used clothing items MUST be cleaned and in good condition. Donors must also be able to drop off donations, as WANI is not able to do donation pick-ups. We are not accepting children’s clothing.**
Everything will go directly to our street family.
If you are interested in getting involved, please contact volunteer Brandi Nuse-Villegas at 559-305-2617 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or send a message on our Facebook page, We Are Not Invisible.
