OpSafeWinter January 2017 (Part 2)

We Are #HoustonAnonymous.

This on-going operation will be focusing on:

Gathering jackets, socks, shoes, blankets, and any warm cllothing items we can accumulate and distribute to the homeless.

Along with efforts to collect any basic camping equiptment such as tents, tarps, sleeping bags, duct tape, back packs, and bicycles that we can also give to those who need these items the most in the Houston area.

Continueing efforts to collect and distribute hygiene products, non-perishable food, fruits, and other nessacary items will continue as well.

Never feel guilt that you can't give enough, every action makes a difference. If you can do it before the date of this event, or after, or everyday, every bit helps. I will be there, rain or shine, at the dates and times specified. We can share with 5 people legally, as long as it is not in a park. We are organized individuals. Imagine what 100 of us could do!

Important Legal Notice: (READ)
The Houston Food Sharing ordinance comes with potential
penalties of $2,000 fines per volunteer, every time they
share food with more than five people in public without
prior city permission.

"Making it easier for someone to stay on the street is
not humane; it's not right,"
-Mayor Parker
