3 Ways to Help Homeless Teens

There are 1.7 million homeless teens in the US. What the what? Even scarier, 1 out of every 3 homeless people is under the age 18. Take action around this issue. We’ve got 3 ways on how YOU can help.

1. Serve food: Contact the local shelters in your area and get permission to host a special dinner for the homeless teens there – whether that means providing food supplies for the shelter to prepare it or doing a potluck style with your friends!

2. Start a club at your school: and take action around this issue year-round. You could make hygiene kits, or hold a coat drive, or blanket drive.

3. Host a charitable basketball game: and ask for items you’re collecting for your drive (aka jeans or supplies to make a care package, etc).
