Project H20: Help provide life sustaining water to our street family

Water is Life.

And it’s a huge need for our street family. Without adequate, regular access to water, our street family deal with lack of proper hydration. Summer can be an especially dangerous time, with increase risks of heat stroke, heat exhaustion, and other dehydration related health problems.

We need partnerships, starting this spring time, with community members to provide water to our street family. Plan with your church, group, or family and friends to raise donations of water or donate financially directly to We Are Not Invisible.Β 

Fill out our interest form if you would like to get involved in Project H2O

Donate towards water here (let us know the donation is for water)

Help our street family stay warm these cold days: Project Share The Warmth

Provide Warmth To Our Homeless

During the cold winter months,Β  our street family need help staying warm without shelter. There are two ways you can help share the warmth:

Volunteer

Come join us for Share the Warmth every Thursday, 6:00pm-9:30pm26733987_1953624018232560_3512425379198269992_n
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 containerΒ  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.

Donate

You canΒ  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!

25550557_1939771102951185_4089226493702029051_nItems 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 brandiangela78@gmail.com or send a message on our Facebook page, We Are Not Invisible.
