Immediate Needs

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, StreetWise is in immediate need of disposable or cloth masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and tissue.

Make an immediate impact by donating goods that go directly to our vendors and participants to keep them safe, help them do their jobs, and empower them on their path towards economic stability and self-sufficiency.   Stop by often as our needs change seasonally.  Please contact us to schedule delivery of your donation.
