Hundreds of businesses, organizations and individuals have supported our efforts to create safe organized spaces for the un-housed residents of our community. Here are just a few of the ways they have helped:
Chevron Corporation donated funds to help us buy the portable shower unit which now is operating 5 days a week providing showers at homeless communities throughout Richmond. Since June 2020 we've provided...
Ellen Jones: I try to help with one of the most pressing needs for homeless folks which is having proper i.d. and documentation. People need these to apply for stimulus checks and other benefits they may be entitled to such as food stamps, general assistance, drivers license, and social security or just to apply for a job.
Richmond Rotary helped us buy our first truck, a mighty Ford F 150 that we use to pull the shower trailer and haul trash and supplies. Rotary members continue to support us in many ways including volunteering and maintaining the SOS Amazon Donation Registry.
Thanks Jonathan Lawlis and Darlene Quenelle Donated their 2007 GMC Denali to SOS which has been a workhorse in delivering the Shower Power trailer and in hauling trash collected by the Streets Team. Darlene came up with the idea to open an Amazon Gift Registry for SOS where donors can easily purchase tents, sleeping bags and other vital gear for donation to homeless residents.
Anwar Imtair and his wife and children operate the 3M Market in North Richmond. They host the Shower Power trailer on a regular basis, and extend a helping hand to neighbors, both housed and un-housed, as part of their dedication to building a strong community.
Gaia Yoga Studios in Point Richmond holds "Seva Saturdays" where customers are encouraged to bring in donations for SOS Richmond including clothing, food and cash.
Republic Services which operates the Golden Bear Transfer Station provides discounted dumping charges for the 5 tons of trash trash that SOS Richmond's Streets Team brings in every week. and they work with us in a city-wide campaign to prevent illegal dumping, one of the major sources of unsightly trash plaguing many Richmond neighborhoods.
