Meals for Homeless Neighbors

Homeless populations face significant challenges right now as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our homeless neighbors in Arlington need meals, water, and the means to clean up with soap and sanitizer. Meals must be 'ready to eat' and require no heating or preparation as no one has access to any heat source. Please help in any way you can with ready to eat meals, gallon jugs of water, sturdy metal reusable water bottles, soap and toiletries, sanitizer andwipes, hand and foot warmers. You could sign up to help with as much or as little as you'd like each week. Somerville Homeless Coalition will distrubute meals and supplies during their weekly Friday outreach as well as helping connect as many people as possible to housing. Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Drop off is Fridays at 10:30, the SHC team will be waiting in the Thorndike Field Parking lot at their  car--look for an open trunk! THANK YOU!
