After donating shelters and housing projects, HomeAid Puget Sound ensures its investments remain an asset to the community. Through our community outreach “Care Days”, light maintenance is performed on the housing and on landscaping. HomeAid also coordinates company groups and our volunteers to serve as monthly “Meal Teams” for homeless youth and young adults. Additionally, with support from corporate and community sponsors, we create HomeAid “CareKits”. CareKits are safe reflective backpacks filled with essential hygiene products, a rain poncho, hand warmers, socks, water, snacks, homelessness resources and much more. CareKit assembly and distribution is a seamless and inexpensive company or community outreach activity coordinated and managed by HomeAid Puget Sound.
HomeAid “Care Day” at Vision House Children’s Village – Renton When we collectively come together, we make a difference. Members of HomeAid Puget Sound and the New Home Council volunteered at Vision House Children’s Village in Renton by washing windows, staining the deck, repairing fences, and pulling lots of weeds. Thank you Bank of America for the volunteer day supplies! Thank you Land Advisors for breakfast! Thank you Wells Fargo for lunch!
A kit is about more than the amenities inside, it’s about providing hope and a clean start. We pack much needed hygiene products, socks, water, a snack, rain poncho, hand warmers and local homelessness resource information into safe reflective backpacks for those who are struggling to meet their individual or family’s most basic needs. Items are assembled into CareKits by corporations, schools, volunteer teams from around the Puget Sound. The CareKits are then distributed to those in need.
