Make the summer a little less harsh for the homeless
You can help.
Something as simple as a granola bar and a warm smile can help our homeless outreach team engage with people who are experiencing homelessness. Those conversations lead to connections with housing and social services. Supplies are low this summer – you can help by donating peanut butter crackers, toaster pastries, fruit cups and granola bars. Drop off items 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. weekdays at the city’s Human Services office, located on the second floor of the Tempe Public Library, 3500 S. Rural Road. For large donations, contact Homeless Solutions Supervisor Nichole Stevens at email@example.com.
