Hope For The Homeless Packs is a corporate social responsibility program that focuses on providing specific items depending on the time of year to individuals that are homeless.
Approximately 37% of the homeless population finds no shelter each night. Summertime can create additional challenges for the those that are homeless. The persistent heat, and often changing weather conditions cause increases in stress and insomnia due to poor sleeping conditons.
The inability to keep food cool increases risk of food spoilage, which could lead to illness. Hot temperatures can also cause some to take increased risks in order to beat the blazing heat by swimming in dangerous and/or polluted waters, trespassing to access cool areas, drinking alcohol more heavily than normal, using drugs to escape the misery, etc. Providing ThatsJustGood - Beat The Heat packages for the homeless in the summer help give immediate relief to those suffering through those conditions, and in some cases, save a life in the process.
Skills such as organization, delegation, and communication are required for this event. This program is a perfect ally for a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) boost. Research has shown that giving has many upsides compared to receiving. Your organization doesn’t need to be a non-profit or social enterprise to give back to the community.
That's Just Good partners with schools in your community to help show that these teachers are appreciated.
