An anonymous donor reached out to us with some info that led #BAMSTL
to around 15,000 personal #hygienepacks
! We grabbed a 15' #Uhaul
and snagged em in a hurry!
Through the help of #ForThePeopleStreetOutreach
, BAMSTL members rolled through #STL
with a truck jammed full of #goodkarma
, with #donations
heading to #PotBangerz
, and another 7 #outreach #organizations
, with another 19 local orgs picking up supplies throughout the weekend.
Very proud of these #bearded
monsters, and a big special thank you is due to BAMSTL members Cary Warner, Erich Paul, Keith Harangozo, and David Dorney for getting these to the people that need them. Erich specifically came in incredibly #clutch
in picking up the truck and the donation with very short notice. That's killer leadership right there. Shout out to Brad Sarno, Joel Sjerven, and Chasity Mattox for pointing us in the right direction to find more organizations in need. This was a huge donation and a huge undertaking, and the #community
really came out in force to get these in the right hands.
For reference, the estimated #unhoused
population in St. Louis at any given time is estimated around 1400, meaning that these packages will do A LOT of #good
for years to come, and in tons of different areas of concern.
