This is the 7th year that Feed the Need will be in Dallas for their annual homeless giveaway. Feed the Need have helped hundreds in the past withitems donated by caring people. Feed the Need started as a protest against the law making it illegal to feed the homeless. In addition to it being illegal, the process of getting a permit to legally feed the homeless was a long,difficult process of obtaining permits with hard to reach requirements. Now the group passes out coats, blankets, tents, sleeping bags, etc. along with cooked food and baked goods to share with the homeless throughout the day.
Coats, tents, sleeping bags, blankets are the biggest need. And of course anything that can be used to live as a homeless person in the streets and in tent camps, and it gets very cold out there in the winter. Hats, gloves, socks, hygiene, boots and shoes are also needed, especially for children. Luggage,duffle bags or any type of bag that is easy to care are useful as well. The group does not accept money, just items like those listed above. The group is thankful to those who have already donated and would like to encourage others to do the same. We don’t realize the changes we make in other’s lives.
The event takes place in Dallas on December 7,2019 from 10AM-4PM. For more information, please contact Linsey Shaeffer at 409-543-1758.
