Thanks Area 3 Detective Division Sergeant & Lieutenant for coming out today to assist Never 99 and the 001 District Chicago Police with our weekly homeless outreach. Your huge contribution of coats, hats, scarfs, and clothing provided necessary items for those individuals who were in need. Your additional donation of toiletries, socks, underwear and t-shirts will be distributed next week. Special thanks to James Navarro for donating his time to help us pass out items.
Last week when Never 99 did our homeless outreach at the Jackson Red Line, we were able to engage with dozens of homeless individuals needing assistance. Because of that, we decided that we would repeat this location and help those that need help. Here are a few photos from today’s event.
Never 99 along with Chicago Police Department tactical units and @ChicagoCAPS01 were on the move again helping the homeless at the Jackson Red Line. Today we distributed toiletry bags along with a hot meal of soup, provided by Karen Stingley along with fruit, snacks, chips and bottled water to the less fortunate.
Today, Never 99 along with members of OEMC Traffic Management, Jerry Rankins IBEW Local 21 Business Representative , and Officers from the Chicago Police Department Tactical Unit helped the homeless combat the frigid temperatures in Chicago at the CTA Roosevelt stop by providing coats, hats, scarves, gloves, ski pants, hand warmers, and a hot meal.
