A day filled with love, selflessness and service
Serving the homeless community in cities around America every second Saturday of each month by providing nutritious home cooked meals prepared by SELFLESS volunteers, free haircuts, and much more. Through serving, we are forging real relationships, friendships and trust as we build a bridge of hope into the homeless community, understanding their most important needs and doing our part to transition people from crisis to self-sufficiency.
RELATIONSHIP BUILDINGIt is never us versus them. It is WE. We are one with our homeless brothers and sisters. In order to properly serve members of the homeless community, we must first focus on building strong and trusting relationships.
GOOD FOODOnly the best food for the homeless. We believe in serving food that you will give to your most honored guest. We serve food that is filled with love and kindness
CUSTOMER SERVICEWhile other organizations give food, we SERVE the homeless. There is a difference. With a focus on customer service, our goal is to create a unique guest experience that makes the homeless feel loved, cared for and human again.
CONNECT TO CRITICAL SERVICESWith our community partners, we are able to connect people living on the streets with essential services that can help get them from crisis to self-sufficiency
VILLAGEOur volunteers are one close knit group of people who are part of the Generosity Global village. Our focus is to build a community that everyone feels they belong and that their contributions matter. A community of change makers, leaders, servants. We are one.
SELFLESSNESSIt all starts with a focus on GENEROSITY & BEING SELFLESS. It is never about what we can gain, but what we can give and keep giving. Giving should always come from the heart, a place filled with love. Our volunteers are encouraged to be selfless in service, serving with a selfless spirit, giving without expectations of anything.
