Vision: We envision a community where every individual is warm and treated with compassion and respect.

We “Spread the Warmth” by providing the less fortunate with warm clothing, blankets, toiletries, and lunch.  Just as importantly, we want to “Spread the Warmth of Heart”.  We do this by showing people compassion, respect, and fostering friendships through conversation.  So often the less fortunate are used to being ignored, but we believe everyone deserves to be seen, heard, and spoken to as equals.
Twice a month from November through April, we go on “missions” to homeless camps and areas surrounding shelters to Spread the Warmth.  We provide around 200 lunches on each mission, as well as gently used clothing that has been donated to us.  We purchase new underwear and socks to hand out.  We also take requests for items, such as backpacks or steel-toe boots for jobs, and do our best to quickly procure the items and deliver to the requestor.  During a year, we purchase around 1,500-2,000 pairs of socks, 1,500-2,000 pairs of underwear, 300 pairs of boots/shoes, and 300 coats.  We also purchase hundreds of bottles of shampoo and body wash, bars of soap, and tubes of toothpaste.  We give out hundreds of hats, scarves, and gloves to men, woman, and children.  We also supply the homeless with items like blankets, sleeping bags, bus passes, and backpacks, as needed.
