To Make a Donation:

If you would like to complete a service project to help the Homeless Food Run Outreach please help us help our community by following our guidelines and suggestions:

  • Individually wrap/ package all food items
  • Keep donations gender neutral
  • Wash or dry clean used clothing donations
  • Stay away from high sugar food donations - many of our friends have diabetes or other health complications
  • Trail mix - mixed nuts, dried fruit, candies
  • Toiletry kits - tooth brush, tooth paste, hand sanitizer, wipes, deodorant, lotion
  • Clothing - socks, gloves, hat, scarves
  • Juice boxes
  • Cracker snacks
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Water Cases



How Volunteers Help:

Come spend a Friday or Sunday afternoon with our homeless friends in downtown D.C.!

Food, which is donated by the University dining hall, is handed out to the homeless by CUA Students. Help share our resources with those in need.

Many homeless are not only hungry, but just want someone to talk to, so be ready to hear some great stories!
