The Weekender Bag project is an effort by the volunteer group From Sullivan. It’s not always easy to know how to help, or what to give to a person in need. The Weekender Bags Projects and its’ volunteers aim to solve that challenge.
Weekender Bags contain a variety of snacks and sometimes hygiene items. Volunteers give the bags to homeless individuals - many with severe mental health issues - and families with children who stop by our HOAP Day Center after regular hours.
Funds donated to the Weekender Bag project are used to purchase supplies, snacks and hygiene items.

Your generous giving can help us break down the barriers that prevent successful transitions.
