How to get homeless service providers COVID-19 supplies without leaving your couch
AUSTIN, Texas (July 24, 2020) — Homeless service providers need a lot of supplies during COVID-19 to keep themselves, their spaces, and especially their clients experiencing homelessness safe and healthy during the pandemic.
It’s hard for folks living unsheltered in our community to access hygiene supplies and protective gear to keep themselves healthy during COVID-19. Many also have underlying health conditions that make contracting the virus more dangerous.
