Humanize the Homeless

WeHero Volunteer Events

DIY Events

What your team will do:

WeHero works with companies to create healthy meal packages that are delivered to the homeless. Along with the meal packages, we deliver inspirational and motivating cards written by employees. Sometimes a few kind words and a healthy nutritious meal can go a long way in opening someoneโ€™s eyes and heart, giving them the strength and hope needed for a fresh start.

While packaging the food kits, WeHero provides education around the homeless population throughout the United States and what is being done to alleviate the problem. Take photos of your team with the provided Polaroid camera so the recipient of the kit can see who made it! From there, WeHero goes out to the streets with its partners to deliver the food packs to those in need.

How it works:

  1. Select how many people you would like to participate in the event.
  2. We work with our non-profit partners to source all of the necessary materials and activities, add easy to follow instructions, box it up, and ship it to you.
  3. We provide instructions, a video and a pre-event call just to make sure you’re ready to go. Don’t worry, it’s easy and our team is always availble for support.
  4. We provide pre-paid shipping lables and boxes to make sure shipping everything back is easy.
  5. Once the event is over, we send thank you letters and photos to each volunteer.

What the event comes with:

  1. We provide a video presentation to share with the participating volunteers. We also provide detailed instructions to have the perfect event.
  2. Each kit will contain a number of health food snacks and hygiene items. All shipped to your doorstep to go into the kits.
  3. One component of all of our events is the volunteering, but we always work to provide an activity on the side to put your team in the shoes of the recipient.
  4. A poloraid camera so you can send pictures to the recipients.
  5. Pre-paid shipping labels to make it easy to get the kit in the hands of those who need it most.

In-Person Volunteer Events

About the cause:

Today more than ever, there is a shortage of low-income housing units and the gap between income and housing costs continues to widen. On any given night in the United States, more than half a million people experience homelessness.

Our local non-profit partner needs 85 volunteers every day to fill the breakfast, prep, lunch, and dinner shifts. This support allows Glide to serve approximately 2,000 meals per day to the community members who rely on their Meals program.

What your team will do:

This in-person volunteer event will be centered around education, support and networking. The group of local San Francisco employees will start the experience by learning more about the homeless issue in San Francisco and the support that Glide provides. The day will continue with a shift in Glide’s kitchen and dining room to support the delivery of meals to those in need. You may be cooking, serving or cleaning, but every volunteer will have a direct impact on the individuals in need! Once we complete volunteering, we’ll continue with a walking tour of the tenderloin to learn about the history and current situation before ending with a networking happy-hour!
