Donate Items to Support the 2019 Point In Time Count
Thank you for your interest in supporting those experiencing homelessness through this effort. Help City Net, a non-profit provider, reach their goal of 5,000 hygiene kits. These will be distributed during the 2019 Point In Time to survey participants. If you are interested in learning more about this project or other donation needs, visit City Net’s website.
Write a Letter of Compassion for a neighbor experiencing homelessness!
Write an encouraging and uplifting card to go inside each of the hygiene kits made. 2019 Point In Time volunteers will pass them out to those that are experiencing homelessness in Orange County.
Make your cards creative yet simple. Construction paper comes in handy with colorful pens, ribbons, and stickers. Index or postcard size notes are the best. Make it personal by signing your first name only at the end of the message!
Here are some examples of what to write:
“NEVER FORGET HOW SPECIAL YOU ARE”
“YOUR SMILE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD”
”YOU ARE THOUGHT AND CARED ABOUT”
”YOU ARE LOVED”
We suggest that you keep letters generic for men, women and people of all faiths. When preparing to write the letters, place your heart in a position which you most likely would be in if you were uplifting a friend. Take a picture of the letter writing process and share reflections by tagging @EveryoneCountsOC and using the hashtag #EveryoneCountsOC2019
The Letters of Compassion can be dropped off with City Net
Monday – Friday, 9 AM – 5 PM before January 17, 2019
