Making sure everyone has the basic necessities to survive is the most important first step in tackling homelessness. Give A Box seeks to create community-wide networks through which volunteers can help distribute much needed supplies (from clothing, to food, to supplies and more) to homeless families and individuals. Homelessness is not just some abstract issue to be discussed and debated; it is an everyday affliction affecting these real people in our own community. Our hands-on approach counters slacktivist culture and immerses volunteers in the issue to make them more empathetic people. At Give a Box, we give hope to the homeless, one community, one family, one person, one box at a time.
