One Saturday each month, the crew transports 175 packed bags plus tubs of sorted clothes, shoes, snacks, and breakfast items to Linn Park in downtown Birmingham Alabama. There they set up distribution lines and the breakfast table.
Our homeless neighbors wait in two lines, for men and women. Each person receives a bag packed with a hygiene kit, two rolls of toilet paper, a pair of socks, and a bottle of water. Women have the option of an additional ladies’ hygiene kit. Then volunteers help each person choose an outfit and a pair of shoes, as well as seasonal warming or cooling aids when available.
