Feed the Homeless in Phoenix, AZ
I live in Phoenix, Arizona, which has an estimated homeless population of over 25,000. My roommate and I have decided to bring a proper meal (and possibly a little hope) to some of these people. Once a week, we are handing out bagged lunches and bottled water to those in need.
We aren't part of a charitable organization, just two people who decided to do something to try to help. This means that the cost of this has been coming out of or own pockets. Maybe you've been wanting to help, but aren't able to find time in your own schedule. Maybe you live in a rural area where this situation is less present. Whatever the reason, we are hoping this message reaches some people who would like to help us pay for the bread, peanut butter, bottle water, and so on, that we need in order to help feed these people.
It's heartbreaking because there are often fewer sandwiches then there are empty stomachs. Our current budget allows us to provide around 50-60 lunches each week, and we are hoping be able to bring this number up to 100 per week. Our $500 goal will allow us to do this for the next 3 months.
