While out on clean up we encounter community members in need on a regular basis. We supply these individuals with food, clothing, hygiene items, and provide recovery resources they can use to seek treatment.

Sunday's from 9:30 - 1:30 pm free lunches, toiletry items, and clothing are available at our pop-up outreach station,

located at 831 N. Clinton Ave.

Every Sunday our Outreach station sets up in this location to provide food, clothing, and toiletries to people  in need in the community.
