Even if you don’t have the supplies that your local shelter needs or the money to buy them, you can turn to your community. Call your local facility serving the unhoused community and ask what they’re in need of. Then, lead a supply drive in your neighborhood. Post on all of your social media platforms and the NextDoor app, notifying your neighbors of what you’re collecting. You can pick items up or let your home serve as a drop-off location. If you have children, their school might agree to serve as the drop-off location.
