On December 18th the North Division Homeless Outreach Team at the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department will hold their second annual Holiday Care Packages for the Homeless event. Their goal is provide help to those living on the streets in the form of care packages filled with items donated by community partners. The packages will include information about homeless services and resources in Sacramento County, personal toiletry items, clothing, and also non-perishable food.
Members of the HOT handed out 50 Holiday Care Packages made possible by donations from local businesses, Sheriff’s Volunteers, and others in the community last year. Those packages were distributed to homeless people in the North Area. The goal this year is to pull together twice as many Holiday Care Packages.
