Advanced Nutrients is matching donations to this campaign dollar-for-dollar up to $150,000 through the end of August.
For 2021 Humanity Heroes is helping the following homeless demographics:
- Homeless veterans
- Homeless youth
- Homeless LGBTQ
- Homeless families
- Homeless single mothers/pregnant escaping domestic violence
- Homeless in Skid Row
- Homeless in recuperative / rehabilitation care
If you would like to partner on doing joint fundraisers for any of the above mentioned demographics we have an Honorarium Fundraiser opportunity, to learn more about this here.
Since 2014, CEO Michael “BigMike” Straumietis’ non-profit Humanity Heroes has equipped over 40,000 homeless people in Southern California with daily, life-giving essentials through its “Humanity Pack” campaign. To learn more about how BigMike started Humanity Heroes, you can learn more about our founder’s story here.
Every year, volunteers of the non-profit head to Skid Row, delivering these backpacks straight to the people who need them most. To get an idea of the Humanity Pack campaign you can watch our volunteers in action during the 2019 and 2020 campaign.
While homelessness has been increasing nationwide for the last four years, the global pandemic has exacerbated the situation, creating an unprecedented need for resources and relief. When COVID-19 hit, Humanity Heroes responded with immediate action to provide hygiene kits, face masks, and other safety essentials to those without direct access to them. And in 2020, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and the City of Los Angeles Recreation & Parks recognized the non-profit for its contribution to the homeless shelters during the pandemic.
Now, Humanity Heroes is pursuing its mission to improve the quality of life for the homeless on a national level. Current outreach includes Humanity Pack distribution in Colorado, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington. Read more about our out of state donation efforts here.
There are various ways to give back.
Companies and local businesses can contribute by donating essential items to fill the Humanity Packs on an ongoing basis. Humanity Heroes is also always looking for volunteers to help make a difference.
Each Humanity Pack includes:
- First-Aid Kits, Facemask, Hand Sanitizer, Flashlight
- Beanie, Gloves, Socks & Wool Blankets
- Rain Poncho, Sunscreen & Lip Balm
- Feminine & Personal Hygiene Items & Toiletries
