  One hundred percent of your donation goes to help the homeless

as we are a small group of
volunteers with

no salaries, overhead, or administrative costs.

We do, however, need help in defraying operating costs: nightly purchases of thrift store blankets,

bottled water, and gas to reach Oakland's homeless each night.

We also have two GoFundMe (second GoFundMe) sites
to help fund our many projects helping the homeless
