homeless encampment winter (bay area)

Hi,

As many of you know this will be one of the coldest winters in the bay area currently at 35 degrees in the mornings and even lower temps at night. With the rain, storms, winds, and snow in the mountains.

Homeless encampments deserve to get the help they need that they are not getting through the city. I'm asking for any amount of $ of donations you can provide to be able to buy them blankets, sweaters, hats, socks and winter essentials to help them get by. That i will leave at the campsite to help out, along with other warm blankets and essentials.

They currently dig through trash cans in search of food, umbrellas, tents, used clothing etc. They range from as young as 18- as old as 60. I'm planning to help regardless but any donation would be essential to be able to get them more clothing & food & water.

I will provide photos of the essentials purchased along with receipts as proof every $1 is going directly to help them. But i will not record their reactions as that to me is inhumane and i would rather remain anonymous. 

Any little donation helps. We are all human. This winter could kill them of cold or harsh health conditions. I'm doing something as the city will not. unfortunately not everyone is blessed to afford bay area rent during this pandemic and we're seeing alot of people in need & familys.


Thank you.
