WAYS OF GIVING
We wouldn't be able to help our homeless without your kind contributions. There are many ways in which you can donate.
Top 5 Needed Items!
Your gifts are very much appreciated. We'll consider other items and be happy to arrange pick up!
Stuff the bus!
The concept is a simple one. We provide the bus and you host the event. We are always in need of hats, gloves, boots, sleeping bags, and of course coats! Any items to help the cause are welcome. This is a fun event that doesn't require much effort and is a great way to be involved. We do most of the work! Sure, we love new items, but we'll gladly accept your gently used clothing as well.
ONE TIME DONATION
Not sure what to donate? A monetary donation will help tremendously! It takes lots of fuel to operate our donation bus. Repairs can be costly too! Without safe and reliable transportation we couldn't provide for the needy. You can feel assured knowing your donation is put to work helping us stay operational. And using PayPal, a trusted network, the utmost care is taken to protect your information. Please donate today!
There are many ways in which your generosity can help our veterans and families stay warmer in the cold winter months. This could include hosting a "Stuff The Bus" event, donation of unwanted vehicles, fundraisers, or your other creative ideas! We'd love to hear from you. Because of your kindness, we can help prevent those that have sacrificed so much for our country from freezing to death.
We affectionately refer to our old blue bus as Nelson and he takes a lot of fuel to get us to where we need to be. He’s a thirsty old fellow but a great asset to our organization. You can show your appreciation to Nelson, as we do, by donating a gas gift card. It’s simple and easy. Please mail to:
