Carr & Carr Donate To Homeless Alliance
In 2019, Carr and Carr Attorneys partnered with the Homeless Alliance of Oklahoma City and Red Coyote Running to host the inaugural Fun Run to raise shoe donations and monetary donations for our homeless neighbors.
The need for help in our homeless community is greater than ever during the Coronavirus. Unfortunately, the Coronavirus also limits our ability to host a fun run this year while still practicing social distancing and protecting our team and the community.
This year we will adapt to the new circumstances and will donate $2,500 to help the Homeless Alliance buy the essential needs they have to operate. We also want to spread the word of need to our communities.
Hygiene packs: in a gallon-size Ziploc bag include soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste.
Summer packs: with the hot months upon us a summer pack is easy and inexpensive to put together: sunscreen, insect repellent, deodorant, chapstick.
Additional donation items include:
- Masks to be handed out to our day shelter guests
- Alcohol wipes
- Men’s Underwear
- Hand sanitizer
- Shampoo & conditioner (travel and large sizes)
- Toothbrushes & toothpaste
- Insect repellent
- Disposable razors
- Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Aspirin, allergy pills
- Antibiotic ointment
- Cotton balls and cotton swabs
How You Can Donate
Deliver your donations to the Resource Center lobby between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. It is located at 1729 N.W. 3rd Street (one block east of Penn on N.W. 3rd) in OKC.
Monetary Donations Help The Most
Monetary donations are the most impactful for the shelters. They are able to take a monetary donation and stretch it much further than the individual. The shelters can buy in bulk needs and save thousands of dollars doing so. A monetary donation can be made online at http://bit.ly/donateHA
Although what you might be able to do during the covid-19 pandemic might look different than what it has in the past, there is still a need for volunteers. To get involved and give back please contact: [email protected]
