Hey Evansville! We are collecting winter gear donations for our unhoused neighbors! As you are pulling out your winter-wear and replacing items please consider bringing them to our two donation box locations at Flourished Eatery and Aurora all thru winter! All items will go to folks in need directly, no strings attached. Monetary donations will go to buying bulk supplies as well. Our weekly free lunch has been a dependable sense of community and resource for folks living outside. It's gives chance to keep up with each other's obstacles and comradeship over a home-cooked meal. We aren't case workers or an official organization so don't require or collect invasive information. We don't receive large grants like most shelters or churches. Everything we provide comes from the community's abundance and goes to the communities underserved. Please share and consider what you can spare! Donation pickups are limited but possible with coordination. Otherwise find our donation box location and suggestions below! P.s. Dollar Tree has cheap, quality items that go a long way! 😉 Happy Fall 🍁 #foodnotjails #mutualaid #ifyourecoldtheyrecold ... See MoreSee Less
