Host a Winter Sock & Basic Needs Drive at Your Office or Work
Teen Feed works to offer basic needs items and daily essential to help homeless youth care for themselves. Teen Feed distributes basic needs items to youth at the nightly meal program, during street outreach, and in our office as youth access support coordination.
We rely on your help to provide basic needs items to the youth. Please consider holding a supply drive for youth. A supply drive may be collecting coats and sleeping bags at your office, home or social group, or sending an email to friends requesting travel toiletries. Whatever a supply drive may look like to you, know you are providing youth the daily essentials they desperately need. We have included downloadable signage and resources to help you with with your Sock or Basic Needs Drives.
