Pillow Providers

What Did We Do?

Throughout 2019 we've handed out over 110 pillows and accessories in Minneapolis, St Paul and the surrounding area.  Having a comfortable place to lay your head at night is often overlooked and we believe that everyone should have a new pillow to help them sleep.  Check out our Pillow Provider Project page for more info on this ongoing project!

Park Cleanup!

What Did We Do?

It's spring time in Minnesota which means the snow has uncovered our beautiful parks!  This also means they haven't been cleaned up in quite some time so we went out and cleaned up a few of the parks in the suburbs of Minneapolis.   These are just a few photos of our cleanup efforts.  We challenge YOU to pick up some trash today!

Don't forget the parking lots!  Those cigarette butts pile up.

Oppenheimer Park Event

Handing out waters in Oppenheimer Park, Vancouver, BC.

What Did We Do?

Oppenheimer Park is a park in Eastside Downtown Vancouver, British Columbia that houses a large homeless encampment.  During the summer of 2018, Vancouver was hit with a brutal heat wave.  During this heat wave, we decided to head over to the encampment to offer up cold water and fresh fruit to the inhabitants.  Here you'll see a few photos of an afternoon well spent!
