Regional Task Force on the Homeless (RTFH) conducts an annual volunteer-led census called WeALLCount, which collects data on the scope and causes of homelessness in San Diego County. The 2011 survey determined that nearly 9,000 local men, women, and children live on the streets or in shelters. When RTFH reported its findings to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, it helped trigger $15 million in federal funding aid for homeless services.
In addition to gathering critical data, WeALLCount’s volunteers hand out vouchers for food, share information on local resources, and distribute hygiene kits to provide temporary relief and comfort while the organization seeks long-term solutions. Each hygiene kit costs $3 to assemble, and includes soap, a toothbrush, a small towel, and other bath and care products in a reusable bag. RTFH needs additional funding to meet its goal of distributing 1,000 hygiene kits.
Join G-Team and donate $9 to help provide hygiene kits for homeless individuals. If G-Team members raise $315, then Regional Task Force on the Homeless can distribute 105 hygiene kits to homeless individuals as part of its annual WeALLCount census. Each additional $9 donation will fund three more hygiene kits.
