We launched our Umoja Project expansion programs this week! We’re now offering various outreach services four out of seven days of the week.
Communal Bleach Monday
This week we were gifted with a Bleach Maker from WaterStep, a local nonprofit who provides global access to fresh water and bleach creation. We are able to make 10 Gallons of bleach every hour!
Individuals, community organizations, small businesses and anyone else in Louisville, KY in need of bleach please fill out this form. We’re offering bleach to the community on Mondays between 10 AM and 3 PM.
**Please bring your own jugs/bottle(s)**
Sack Lunch Tuesday
We’re building a bridge between communal support and site-based Boys and Girls Clubs that serve the Semple Elementary and Frost Middle School areas. We are acting as a community liaison and gathering sack lunches and snacks prepared and purchased by giving members of the Louisville community.
Our original unhoused outreach service has extended from biweekly to weekly, doubling our impact! Every Thursday at 6 PM we’re able to distribute 60+ hot meals and essential items known as Change Kits – masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, vitamins, deodorant, bar soap, shampoo, conditioner, washcloths, combs, razors, socks, and period products.
If you are in a position to give toward any of these programs please consider donating in the form of hot meals, snacks, sack lunches, project supplies, gift cards, or monetarily.
