Thankful for Long Johns
AfterHours is known for serving sack lunches in Civic Center Park to those experiencing homelessness and poverty. We strive to do this everyday of the year. However, on Thanksgiving the park is filled with people sharing free food to those in need. Since hunger is addressed by so many others on that day we have decided to do something different and offer a gift of warmth.
Thanksgiving 2020 looked a bit different due to the SARS-COV-2 viral pandemic. This year donations were arranged ahead of time. After they arrived, the items were collected, sorted, sanitized, and prepped for delivery to our partner organizations around the metro area. We are collaborating with shelters, day centers, and street outreach teams to make sure we can get these essential items to those that need them.
