Host a Basic Needs Drive!
Teen Feed works to offer basic needs items and daily essential to help homeless youth to care for themselves. We distribute basic needs items to youth at the nightly meal program, during street outreach, and in our office as youth access support coordination. And as the weather changes, so do our basic needs items!
We rely on you, our community, to provide basic needs items to the youth. Consider collecting items at your office, home or social group, or sending an email to friends. Whatever a supply drive may look like to you, know you are providing youth the daily essentials they desperately need. Below we have provided downloadable signage and resources to help you with with your Basic Needs Drives. Thank you on behalf of the youth we serve*
