WHAT WE DO
1. Maintain contact with homeless/shelters to identify needs NOT being met by other organizations and donations.
2. Track PayPal and cash donations with the intent to expend all donations by 31 December of each year.
3. Work with businesses and organizations to obtain donations and discounts to get more items into the hands of the homeless.
4. Search and utilize online venues to find slightly used items that local citizens/businesses are willing to sell or donate.
5. Pickup items from local citizens and businesses from online or public sales.
6. Deliver items to the homeless shelters and to the homeless on the street who need it.
7. Share the Word of God where and when we can.
WHAT WE DON'T DO
1. Accept items left over from garage or estate sales unless a specific demand is identified.
2. Accept items that are in poor condition.
3. Store items onsite for future needs; all items are purchased at the time they are needed.
4. Donate cash to homeless or homeless shelters. All donations received by Help4Homeless will go towards specific subsistence needs.
5. Use donations to pay Help4Homeless volunteers. All time, fuel and vehicle maintenance costs incurred by volunteers is donated.
6. Have any business, financial or associate ties with any of the homeless or homeless shelters we help.
