Humblebees - A Homeless Winter

Humblebees supplies Winter Survival Kits to the homeless community to help them cope with the cold winter months in the Tri-State region of Kentucky, Ohio, and West Virginia.

We foster hope in our homeless community by providing basic human needs, comfort, and protection while they strive to improve their lives and obtain stable housing.

Our dedicated "humble bees" travel city to city providing warm winter clothing, hygiene products, and other essential daily survival gear to those in need. We hand deliver warm clothing, boots, and backpacks full of supplies to anyone dealing with life on the streets. We also offer sleeping bags and tents to those without shelter to reduce wind-chill and prevent the onset of hypothermia.

When I was homeless, I met some really great people; men, women, and families who deserve a better life. Homelessness, sadly, can happen to anyone. I've experienced first-hand how hard it is to survive the winter with little help. Having certain tools; such as a way to carry essential items, a winter coat, warm clothing, blankets, and a sleeping bag; can mean the difference between life and death...

Can you imagine sleeping outside in the winter?

Your donation ‌will allow us provide our neighbors with the comfort and protection from the elements we all need as human beings.

Our humble bees, friends, and families are ‌gathering essential items from this list of supplies. If you would like to lend a hand, please contact me. We can arrange to have your donations picked up anywhere in the Tri-State area. 

Brrr, it's cold. Be prepared this winter...

If you're homeless and currently located in the Tri-State region of KY, OH, and WV, please contact me so we can get a survival backpack in your hands before the temperature drops and it starts to snow.

This link details the items that come in each of our Winter Survival Kits. For the most recent campaign updates, moving stories, and amazing results of your generous donations, find us on Facebook. We need your help to gather items for the homeless this winter, as well as help fund our mission. We definitely can't do this alone. Thank you for all your help!

* If you'd like to read our full story and help us file for Nonprofit status, so we can continue to help the homeless in the Tri-State, please visit our new donation page.

If you'd like to learn more about Humblebees and find out what you can do to help the homeless year-round, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and more! Unfortunately, homelessness doesn't end when the new year begins... We need help funding this project so we can continue to serve our community in the future.

Thank You!
