Help The Homeless
Make A Donation
The Help the Homeless Project collects donations, new clothing and supplies to deliver on Thanksgiving Day as part of an outreach event in downtown Sacramento serving hundreds of men, women and teens living on the streets and in shelters.
In the 8th year of our largest project, our goal is to increase our giving capacity to serve 500 people which is over double what we’ve done in the past - so we need your help!
Help us hit our goal!
Thank you to our project sponsor
How You Can Help
There are two ways you can help this year: - online donation or purchase supplies via our Amazon shopping list. Donations of all sizes and types appreciated, no matter how big or small - it all helps make an impact. And as always,100% of your tax-deductible donation will be used for our project.
Online Donation - your contribution will go towards the purchase of new clothing & supplies to be delivered on Thanksgiving Day at our outreach and local shelters.
How Your Donations Are Used
100% of your donations are used to purchase critical clothing and supplies including:
Hygiene Kits: toothbrush/ toothpaste, shampoo/conditioner, lotion, band-aids, chapstick, hand sanitizer, deodorant, combs (approx $10 each)
New Clothing: Shoes, socks, jackets, gloves, hats (approx $15 each)

Homelessness has continued to increase in Sacramento County, seeing an increase of 19% over the past couple of years. It’s been reported that more than 11,000 people engaged with the homeless system last year, and on any given night there are more than 5,000 experiencing homelessness. Our project could impact nearly 10% of those in need!
The Tower of Niceness was founded with the mission to help people whenever and wherever we can. It feels especially important this year to do just that. With the support of people like you, we will be able to buy critically needed clothing and supplies for those in need during the holiday season.
