Thanks to everyone who has donated thus far! Today we did a donation of physical goods! Our third.

Today we gave several boxes of tampons and pads, a couple packages of baby wipes, couple sticks of deodorant, socks, underwear, first aid kit items, and adult KN95 masks to Under the Bridge Project.

Under the Bridge Project is building a sustainable community for those experiencing homelessness. This project has done so much to help those in encampments improve their physical circumstances. They help clean the trash up around the encampments, feed the people quality hot meals, hand out fresh warm clothes, propane tanks, and build relationships with those living there. The work is incredible, and you can follow along and find opportunities to support by following them on instagram.

We were also able to get baby wipes to a mom in need in the Portage Park area, and a bottle of soap and lotion to a person in Irving Park.

We are organizing more drops to happen over this weekend - as long as the vehicle can make it out of the snow.

Thanks again, for your support and love. Every shoutout, dollar, and diaper is a step towards community care. Hopefully soon, more sustainable practices and equitable, just policies will be put in place. Till then... <333
