My apologies for the delay in updating everyone on our progress. We have collected some more donations thanks to all of you! We provided outreach last week on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday with meals including four hoagie trays, about 20 cases of water, tons of fruit trays and fresh fruit for later, granola bars, fruit snacks, salad trays, goat cheese spreads including plain and berry infused along with focaccia bread for dipping, tomato salad with balsamic, two cartons of milk, pastries, almost 100 doses of Evzio (overdose reversal drug), 30 Fentanyl testing strips, did wound care on three people for accesses and a foot injury, gave out two cases of new socks, one tent, bags of antibacterial wipes and bags of feminine hygiene packs for women involved in sex work. We reversed an overdose on Thursday and recruited a new volunteer who is amazing. We love you and we appreciate your support beyond words. Please donate and share our organization's page. We need volunteers too!
