We supply soap and shampoo. We give new socks and underwear to those that take a shower.
As we listen to voices that too often are not heard, let us put ourselves in the place of those who cry for assistance. CCSA shares this true story for awareness of those who struggle, fight for a sleeping place, are hungry, and often cold and gripped with fear for their safety. Many simply don’t know what happened, it all developed so fast. A crisis is a crisis, no matter how it took place. How can we help and shouldn’t we always respond?
Men, Women & Children’s new or gently used sneakers
