Emergency Funds for Outreach Teams
Organized by: Beth Maglio
Outreach teams for Friends of State Street Family bring along many of the supplies Madison's homeless citizens need to meet their basic needs. However, the team is often faced with situations where they need to purchase items to help a friend in need. Perhaps it could be dinner for a preganant woman who hasn't eaten all day, wound care supplies for a veteran or more bottled water when we ran out. In these situations, many outreach members spend money out of their own pockets. This fundraiser will be used for a petty cash fund for outreach team leaders to use to better meet the needs of our homeless friends. All funds spent on outreach will be accountable to board approval.
