The Problem

The purpose of the Roots & Shoots project is to show love, support and provide resources for those that need it the most during these times of hardship and racial injustice. Unsheltered children and families live without the means to acquire the basic human comforts of warmth, health, safety, and cleanliness. We want to uplift, volunteer and lend a hand to supply needed "Love Care Kits" to the families that are without the everyday necessities that's needed to survive in this world. In doing, this project are hopes are to start a tipping point and recruit many others in our community to assist us in making this a worldwide yearly event to donate personal hygiene items, nonperishable food items, new or used cleaned clothing, socks and shoes. Also pet food for many individuals experiencing homelessness, pets are literally lifesavers. We're supposed to love and help our neighbors and we want to be a part of the solution and walk in love. We're going to connect with numerous shelters, department stores, grocery stores and schools to get them involved as well to build up our community. The community is low-income, no-income, underserved youth, and high-crime areas as well.

Our Plan

We're going to connect with numerous shelters, department stores, grocery stores and schools to get them involved in our "Love Care Kit" to assist the homeless youth and families that are in dire need to uplift and build up our community to show a force of care, love and support for all.

Here is how the project went:

We had such an amazing turnout and impact in the community and shelters. The volunteers really put in the time and effort to make this a success! We had donors to come forth and provide lunch for all the volunteers and community leaders that worked together to create this amazing event. Everyone was so excited and grateful to become a part of this event. We’re already making plans to do this twice a year because we had so many others wanting to get involved in the coming year.

What I/we might change:

Our most favorite part of this project and I believe that I can personally speak for everyone and that was seeing the smiles and tears that came due to feeling like you changed someone’s life just by volunteering and working to help others in need.
