B4B - Bikers 4 Homeless - Backpacks
The mission of Bikers 4 Homeless is to provide homeless and near homeless individuals with the items they need when living on the streets of Houston.
We treat all people with dignity and respect, always with the understanding that we are part of one community
We are community leaders and advocates for homeless people and people at risk of homelessness.
We are committed to innovation and best practices in our programs.
Type of Food
The food generally consists of cereals, breads, packaged goods, juices, canned goods, snacks, chips, candies, etc. The backpacks (usually a combination of boxes and bags)
Our goal is to make up no less then 20 backpacks with items each month and pass them out to anyone in need.
Homeless Gear collects and distributes supplies that people need to survive and meet their basic needs while they are homeless. We are not a clothing bank — our niche is outdoor gear, outerwear, hygiene supplies and non-perishable food. That narrow focus enables us to fulfill our core mission, leverage resources and allow other organizations (e.g. clothing banks) to do what they do best.
