Helping the homeless of Providence during these trying times.
Providence, RI: Performance Adjusting, has started 6 Feet Closer: The Winter Action Project which brings the community together while physically staying 6 feet apart. We have raised $2,025 out of their goal of $2,500 to buy food, water, winter clothing, and personal hygiene products for the homeless in Providence (Amount as of 2:30 PM, Thursday, December 10).
There are two drop off locations:
People can drop off the following items:
- Hand sanitizer
- Toilet Paper
- And whatever else you find helpful to the homeless during these cold months ahead
The goal is to give out 400 bags to the homeless on Friday, December 18, 2020, with a deadline to donate money to the GoFundMe or to drop off items on Friday, December 11, 2020. If extra bags, donated items, or money is leftover after the deadline, which is anticipated, they will be doing a second drop off in early January (date to be announced).
The idea came from Alexis Pollack, Performance Adjusting’s director of social media and marketing, and her girlfriend, Amber Lovejoy, both of Warwick, Rhode Island after seeing the growing homeless population in Providence (and around the state) and their desire to help during these trying times.
