Every dollar donted specifically for food through the Regional Food Bank turnes into $12- Find out more about the Food Bank Program.
Host an Event - Ask your company or school to host fund-raising events, such as golf outings, bottle drives,
raffles or craft sales and donate the proceeds to Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless. You can also ask your
company or school to match whatever funds you and your co-workers or friends raise.
Sponsor an Event – Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless organizes several events which are successful due to our communities support. Please visit our special events page to learn more about how you can participate.
Holidays - Every holiday season Interfaith adopts homeless families. Donate gifts to provide a special holiday to a family in need.
Furniture Donations— At Interfaith we help people find housing. Furniture donations can help an individual get settled into a new location.
Clothing Donations – An individual going on a job interview could utilize a suit, shoes, tie or dress. Winter
coats, hats, gloves and boots help those that are facing the cold weather. Infant, children and adult size clothing
are needed for families who visit the Sheridan Hollow Drop-In Shelter.
Volunteer - Signing people in, serving meals, tutoring, joining a fundraising committee or helping with
administrative tasks...all volunteer positions are important and valuable to keeping our organization succesful.
View our list of volunteer positions or contact Paul Schroeder, Volunteer Coordinator, at email@example.com.
Cook and Serve a Meal at our Emergency Shelter. Meals help us cut our food costs and also provide a nice treat for our guests to enjoy.
Share a Skill - Cooking, repairing, gardening, and photography are talents that individuals experiencing homelessness could benefit from. Through our hobbies, we can teach individuals useful skills. On the job talents are priceless. Individuals who have clerical skills can train those with little skills. Doctors, psychiatrists, counselors, and dentists can treat individuals experiencing homelessness at our shelter. Lawyers can help with legal concerns.
Employ the Homeless – Homeless individuals are partnered with case workers who mentor them with life skills. Many who come to Interfaith find permanent jobs, often in maintenance, construction, clerical, or security work.
Learn More About the Homeless- Learn about the different reasons for homelessness, and remember, every
situation is unique. Help eliminate stereotypes regarding homelessness. Educate children and help them to see individuals experiencing homelessness as people. Suggest that they sort through the toys, books, and clothes they
no longer use and donate them to Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless.
