We are the Bloomington Homeless Coalition... we are a coalition of people that collaborate with local organizations to mobilize resources in Bloomington, IN for people that are experiencing homelessness.
Since the December 9, 2020 eviction of Seminary Park, we have raised almost $8,000; this money has gone to resources that benefit people experiencing homelessness, including heaters, tents, blankets, food, hygiene products, and much more. There are 3 different ways that we distribute these things: 1. People reach out to us and ask for certain items; 2. Our outreach team goes to people and different camps (with permission); and/or 3. We go to different locations and distribute donations for people (ie. frequented parks, Community Kitchen, shelters, and so on). $2,000 of these donations are earmarked as a bail fund for people experiencing homelessness who have been arrested. Currently we have about $700 left from these donations, apart from the earmarked bail fund.
We are looking for ongoing donations to continue our purchases of heat, food, and other types of assistance that requires cash as opposed to donated items.
We are also looking to become a Non-Profit (501-C3), total legal costs of hiring someone will be about $1000.
We truly appreciate anything, and we are so thankful for our monetary donations, clothes donations, clothes donation, and so on. Thank you all for everything. If you would like to note that your donation should be used for a specific purpose (bail, heat, or anything needed), please feel free to do so!
