Hand Out Water

We hand out water every day and can always use help. We hand out water every afternoon under the 110 - If you put together a group we can do this around your time schedule! Anytime between 11am and 1pm. This is particularly important in the heat of the summer

Grace's Water For Life

Have your group go out and panhandle - in volunteer shirts, with signage about our programs! The money goes right to helping our participants - This requires a group and scheduling in advance.

GATHER NECESSITIES

Put together some bags to hand out, or for us to hand out for you - things we take for granted that street homeless don't have. Hygienic items like toothbrushes and toothpaste, staples like socks, tshirts.

USE YOUR SPECIAL TALENT

What do you love to do? People crocheted recycled grocery store bag sleeping mats, donated graphic design services, and held bake sales - we want your help any way that you want to give it!
