Random Acts of Kindness for Homeless, Bay Area

Every day I see people who are just trying to get by, living on the streets. There are groups of people living in the shadow of the Colosseum in Oakland and other nearby areas near the train tracks and freeways, most of society just walking by as we go about our business. 

The homeless could be battling addiction, mental illness or just down on their luck. I want to buy jackets, blankets, daily need products, just small items that will make a small difference in someone’s life. 

Thank you you for helping. I will add photos of those that were helped and I will only be donating goods to people in need, not direct money handouts.

Who am I? Retired from the military, current public servant.  I just want to make a difference today for people in need. 

Thank you!
