WHAT WE DO
1. Visit Homeless shelters regularly to identify current needs NOT being met through other organizations and donations.
2. Track PayPal and cash donations with the intent to expend all donations by 31 December of each year.
3. Put those donations towards needed items by making purchases at businesses within the community.
4. Work with community businesses to receive discount purchases so more funding gets to those who need it.
5. Search online shopping venues to find slightly used items that local citizens are willing to sell or donate.
6. Pickup items from local citizens and businesses from online or public sales.
7. Deliver items to the homeless shelters and to the homeless on the street who need it.
8. 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 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 organizations we deliver to.
7. Are under no contract or responsibility to any organization or business to purchase or provide specific items based on type, quantity, value or time constraint. This organization was created to help homeless people.
