The Samaritans Outreach Program provides basic living necessities for the homeless, poor, underprivileged children, and their families.
Responding to several calls for help each day, Allan makes multiple stops to deliver basic food items, clothing, personal care & first aid kits, emergency funds, and on-the-street care and support to people in urgent need. He also provides referrals to agencies that help with housing, counseling, chemical dependency, job placement, financial aid, and healthcare. In addition, he provides bus tokens (averaging over 200 per day), sandwiches, and bottled water to homeless people living outside. Riding the bus provides them safe refuge from the city streets, and a place to get out of the cold in winter. He also distributes tokens to people without transportation to get to job interviews, doctor appointments, etc.
Basics provided include:
- Emergency Food: Water, Sandwiches, Fruit, Bakery Goods, Baby Formula
- Clothing: Winter Coats, Hats, Boots, Socks, Gloves
- Basic Needs: Blankets, Diapers, First Aid Supplies, Personal Care Kits
- Funds for: Emergency Transportation, Rent, and Prescription Co-Payments
