THANK YOU FOR VOLUNTEERING TO PROVIDE SNACK BAGS FOR TENT CITY HELPERS!
WE WILL BE HANDING OUT "SNACK BAGS" EVERY MONDAY DURING OUR "TAKEOUT" OUTREACH AS WE WORK TO GIVE OUR HOMELESS FRIENDS A "HAND UP!"
WE NEED A HAND TO DO SO.
Doesn't this sound like FUN? Have a Tent City Helpers Snack Bag Party! Gather your family, friends, co-workers or your community group to purchase supplies and assemble TCH Snack Bags together! You can then sign up to deliver 20, 40 (or even more SNACK BAGS) on a set date, and we'll be sure they get into the hands of the homeless men, women, and children in our area. That's real FUN!
HERE ARE SOME FUN FACTS TO MAKE THINGS A BIT EASIER!
- Tent City Helpers presently serves approximately 40 people/week.
- You can sign up for ONE SLOT = 20 BAGS OR choose TWO SLOTS = 40 BAGS
- Only NON-PERISHABLE FOOD/BEVERAGE ITEMS go inside the SNACK BAG... except a plastic spoon. :)
- A typical TCH Snack Bag consists of a gallon-size Ziploc bag filled with individually wrapped snacks and drink(s) such as: breakfast bars, cereal bars, (not crunchy granola bars), protein bars, peanut butter and cheese crackers, single-packaged nuts and trail mix, Vienna sausage in pop-top can, foil tuna packs (not requiring a can opener) or tuna/chicken salad kits with crackers, raisins, Gatorade, bottled water, pop-top soup or ravioli, Pork n Beans, beef jerky, canned ham, snack cups: fruit, pudding or applesauce, chips, mints... plastic spoon.

DID YOU KNOW?
Tent City Takeout is one of our tremendous opportunities to build relationships with our homeless friends, discover ways in which we may be of assistance, provide some necessities, share a few laughs and words of encouragement, lend a hand and above all else simply let them know they matter, they are not forgotten, they are not alone and they are loved. We do this with the goal of helping them find their way out of the woods. ~ This is our mission.
MISCELLANEOUS INFO RE TAKEOUT:
- Those serving during our TAKEOUT events are limited to a select few volunteers. If you are interested in delivering meals to the homeless, please contact Stacey Solomon @ 772.222.7374.
- For the safety and privacy of our friends in the woods, we limit the number of Helpers attending.
