Shelter from the Streets
The Book Bank Foundation’s “Shelter from the Streets” campaign seeks to provide new clothing, medication, shoes, books and words of inspiration for the less fortunate throughout the streets of New York City. Annually the organization goes through the five boroughs, into shelters, into train stations, under bridges and bus stations to serve the underserved; each year collecting donations of new products for the homeless, for children as well as those who have been subject to domestic violence.
