Camps & Kits

 

CitySquare has a wide-range of in-kind needs to support our neighbors. From unsheltered neighbors moving into a home to the youth we're serving through afterschool and summer feeding programs, there are multiple ways to support our programs by creating camps or kits.

Create a Camp

You can create a camp tote at home and help kids have a great summer! Our CitySquare Food programs offer meals and fun camp-style activities by bringing along a tote full of items such as hula hoops, sidewalk chalk, balls, simple outdoor games, water toys or balloons, markers, crayons, and more. If you’re able to shop locally, please double your impact and support our city’s small businesses.

Grocery Bag Collection

With our increased food distribution, we have a need for more grocery bags! Each set of food distributed to a neighbor uses 6-8 bags. Collect plastic or reusable grocery store bags for use in our drive-through/walk-up food pantry. Rally your neighborhood to help with a posting on NextDoor or your local Facebook group or ask friends and family to leave them on your doorstep.

TRAC Food Boxes

Our TRAC drop-in center provides snacks and ready-to-eat meals to our youth, such as Rice-A-Roni, microwave meals, canned chili and soups, Vienna sausages, Kraft macaroni and cheese cups, Cup O’ Noodles, and Chef Boyardee. Protein-rich and healthy snacks are popular with the youth like bagged tuna kits, peanut butter, beef jerky, granola bars, apple sauce, and individual bags of nuts.

Homeless Outreach Kits

Create a kit that our Homeless Outreach Team (HOT) can share with our neighbors experiencing homelessness. CitySquare HOT visits our neighbors to ensure they have access to resources and opportunities, while also helping find them housing and shelter. During their outreach,  they also provide kits with bottled water, wet wipes, protein-rich snacks, sunscreen, and bug spray.

Welcome Home Kits

What did you need when you moved into your first college dorm or apartment? Our formerly unsheltered neighbors who move into their new home usually do so with only the clothes on their back. Welcome Home baskets include essentials to make their transition easier. High need items are shower curtains and rings, kitchen appliances, dishes, and general cleaning supplies.

Cleaning Buckets

For many of our neighbors cleaning supplies are luxury items, and with today’s focus on personal hygiene and cleanliness, these items are needed now more than ever! A simple cleaning bucket with gloves, an all-purpose cleaner, toilet bowl cleaner, and a cleaning sponge goes a long way.  CitySquare staff will distribute these immediately to neighbors in need in our housing programs.
