Welcome to warmingthehomeless.com.
We are, Sahar and Randy and we created this grass roots foundation based in North Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. We are dedicated to providing the homeless with some basic comfort, so that they can survive the cold & wet winter nights. Many of the homeless choose to remain outdoors and sleep wherever they can find or make shelter. They are our greatest concern. So what started out as an idea has culminated into “Winter” packages.
In the Beginning….
of November 22, 2014, Sahar commented to me that she wanted to do something for the homeless. I asked her what that would be. She said it was getting colder and that we should buy gloves for them. I replied, if we’re going to buy gloves, why don’t we buy toques as well. Sahar added, and socks! And I continued with, candy canes because it was close to Christmas. After all Christmas is about giving. We jumped to our feet and ran out to purchase these items.
In that particular moment the concept of our “winter” package was born … and the name, warmingthehomeless.com was realized.
Join us on this wonderful journey!
We have lots of work ahead of us and time is of the essence for the homeless.
Please check in on our progress and feel free to contact us.
Help us warm the hands & hearts of the homeless.
❤️Sahar and Randy.
