Let's do a donation drive to collect coats and socks for SEARCH homeless to distribute to its clients. SEARCH provides hope, creates opportunity, and transforms lives for thousands of men, women, and children who are trying to break free from the cycle of poverty and homelessness in Houston. SEARCH Houston's Mobile Outreach team is in need of coats and socks to distribute to individuals living on the streets who are experiencing homelessness.
Volunteers will make a SEARCH Homeless Coats and Socks Drive flyer and attach it to empty grocery bags. Then volunteers will distribute the bags by dropping them off at the front porch or door of their neighbors' homes, requesting that they help fill the bag with coats and socks for SEARCH Homeless.
Select a date to return to pick up the food donations and let your neighbors know when you will return. On that date, return to your neighbors' homes to pick up the donations.
You can drop off donations to the Generation SERVE Storage Unit at CubeSmart, 4211 Bellaire. Don't forget to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your service hours so we can keep track of them for you! More instructions and resources will be sent to you after sign up.
