Save a Life -Zero Emergency Relief
Between December 15, 2017 and March 31, 2018, the Kankakee Area Jaycees, BeautifulIam, and Fortitude Canteen Outreach, will collect the funds needed to provide those suffering from homelessness in the Kankakee area with sleeping bags rated for below zero weather. This is part of a larger effort to provide respite in wake of the loss of our area’s largest homeless shelter.
The goal is to hand out 50 sleeping bags or more. The sleeping bags will be supplied by the local Dick’s Sporting Goods at a cost of $75 each with a bulk rate discount.
If you have sleeping bags rated for below zero weather (that are in usable condition) you wish to donate, we are accepting those also, but encourage donating so we can buy and supply new ones to those in need.
Credit card donations can be made at: https://kankakeejaycees.org/zero/
Checks can be made out to: Kankakee Area Jaycees, please add the memo “Sleeping Bags”
