Helping the homeless in NYC

“The idea was simple: Stock backpacks full of items including two pairs of socks, T-shirts, gloves, hats, food items, and necessities like first aid kits, sewing kits, pen and paper, a flashlight, and toiletries like toothpaste/toothbrush, comb, shampoo, soap, and nail clippers.

“The homeless, even before COVID, are one of the most vulnerable and least helped demographics. Most feel invisible. People treat them like they are lower than pond scum at times. It is heartbreaking,” Newman tells The Advocate. “When COVID hit, it became clear immediately that the most vulnerable communities were the elderly, people with underlying illnesses, and the homeless. But of the three, only two — the elderly and people with underlying illnesses — were the ones people were trying to help and keep safe. Almost no one was talking about how to get supplies and care to the homeless.”
