Summary: Create Welcome Home Baskets of housing supplies for newly housed homeless individuals, veterans, seniors, and families at Father Joe's Villages
The San Diego Downtown Breakfast Rotary Club has partnered with Father Joe's Villages for three years to create Welcome Home Baskets for newly housed homeless people in downtown San Diego. Baskets include about thirty items: pots, pans, utensils, other kitchen items, cleaning and laundry, supplies, and various other household items. The baskets help people make their places feel like home and prepare for subsequent inspections. In February 2022, Father Joe's Villages will be opening their new 407-unit facility, Saint Teresa of Calcutta Villa, for homeless individuals, veterans, senior citizens, and families moving into the new building. We would use the funds to purchase in bulk items to fill these baskets; then Rotarians work with FJs employees and assemble the baskets at their warehouse for pickup.
This project is "Fully Pledged". This means the amount of the pledges is equal to the total budget of the project. Now the project needs to be finalized and go through the club signature process. This process gets started on the administration page.
Project listed for the 2021-22 Rotary Year.
