Recycled Resources--the Highland Park based non-profit committed to providing basic supplies and informational resources to the area's homeless--will hold an interfaith outreach event this weekend.
Typically held on Saturdays, Recycled Resources will this weekend hold its outreach event on Sunday, Sept. 9 in coordination with and .
"The date was changed in order for us to combine our services with two local organizations," Recycled Resources Director Rebecca Prine wrote in an e-mail. "Temple Beth Israel and All Saints Episcopal Church asked for help serving those that are homeless in our community"
Those participating in Sunday's outreach are invited to attend mass at All Saints at 10 a.m.
Following that, those who are donating supplies are asked to arrive at 11 a.m. to drop them them off. As of Wednesday, Prine was still looking to collect donations of ice, Gatorade and coolers.
At 11:30 a.m., youth groups from the Church and Temple will make lunches, which will be served at 12:30 p.m. to volunteers. During that time, Prine will hold an educational session about Recycled Resources' mission. Volunteers are also invited to share their own experiences with homelessness.
From 1:30 to 2:30 volunteers will conduct outreach, traveling in groups to areas inhabited by local homeless and delivering supplies.
"This is a great opportunity for us to educate others about our work and also share with others why we dedicate our time to doing the work we do," Prine said. "For the outreach we plan on having at least 10 cars with about 15 lunches per car so we can reach more people than ever before."
