Pack with Us

The pandemic caused by COVID-19 has caused a disruption in the level of service we are able to offer to the homeless and to our volunteers. We are still distributing backpacks but in a different way. Instead of distributing in groups, we are counting on YOU to help us get the backpacks in the hands of those who need them. Would you be willing to keep a backpack in your car to distribute to someone you might see on your commute?

As you might be aware, we host a packing party every year in honor of our founder, Ryan’s birthday. This year, we are not sure what that will look like. It is a challenge that we are adapting to, in this age of COVID-19 precautions.

We will have details on this event and other ways that you can get involved soon!
