Outreach Van water and sandwich Donations
The Joseph's House & Shelter Outreach Van is based at 242 Broadway, Menands NY, and serves homeless persons around the city of Albany and Troy. Each day of the year, our staff and volunteers take supplies out to people living outside: blankets, clothing, bandages, razors - and bottled water and sandwiches, to supplement any hot food we have.
You are invited to sign up to donate sandwiches or water for clients of our Outreach Van. Currently the van is handing out up to 60 sandwiches per day. You do not have to bring that many- just add the number to the "notes" so staff know how many extra to make.You can sign up to donate sandwiches, sandwich supplies (bread, fillings and small bags) and/ or bottled water.
The van operates from 242 Broadway, Menands NY and leaves a little after 12:00pm. You can drop off the sandwiches anytime between 12pm and 4pm - and staff will collect the donations and store them for the van driver. Currently we have limted staff on the weekends at our new outreach building so we ask that you bring the sandwiches to 74 Ferry Street in Troy on the weekends. If you have questions about donating, such as what is appropriate in the sandwiches, or what else we might need, please contact [email protected] (51) 874-1247.
Thank you all!
