About NEED TO FEED
With the inspiration to give out cold bottle water on a very hot summer day in Dallas, a group of friends: Amir, Yaz, Drake, and Cornelius; bought cases of bottled water and took them directly to homeless people in the streets! This rewarding, yet not sufficient experience and multiple requests for food, from the homeless, led to our second mission. We were able to feed 120+ people from sandwiches, chips, and water that we purchased and prepared in our home. With this new-found sense of purpose, we have dedicated ourselves to the cause, a NEED TO FEED! Not only feeding with food, but there are so many other needs! On our latest event, Nov. 3rd, we set a goal to give away sleeping bags to these people that we have witnessed sleeping on newspaper, cardboard, worn quilts, and even bare cement. We were able to give away almost 100 sleeping bags!! On December 15th we helped the homeless tackle the cold with our BLANKET/SOCK/GLOVE/HAT Drive. Also in December, we were blessed to sing Christmas songs for the elderly at one of the local retirement homes! On January 26th, which was so rewarding, we were proud to host the "Warm the Soul, Feed the Body Event." On this event we gave away warm soup, crackers, bottled water, to-go soup, blankets, hand warmers, socks, gloves, and hats. Next, we are planning to launch our "Hygiene Event" Sunday, February 17th. With your generous contributions, via monetary, time, etc... we will come closer to feeding, meeting the needs, and rehabilitating the homeless across our city, state, and eventually across our country!!
