Supplies Needed for our Local Homeless Population. We Need Your Help!
Partner agencies from the Southeast Alabama Coalition for the Homeless (SEACH) need supplies for our Homeless population as cooler weather is just around the corner. We are asking that donations of supplies for the Homeless be dropped off at area agencies that will distribute the items to our local homeless population. Below are the supplies needed and the drop off locations. Thank you for your support!
“During this season of giving and thankfulness, let’s do what we can to make sure that we’re taking care of those less fortunate,” says David Duke, Executive Director of Wiregrass 2-1-1. “You know, people aren’t homeless because they wanna be, there are circumstances, there are reasons that you may not understand or know.”
No clothing please, except coats/sweaters, gloves, socks, gloves, underwear and jeans only for men, women & children. There are many local organizations providing clothing on a weekly basis year-round.
