Seven-hundred people experiencing or at-risk of homelessness are killed from hypothermia annually in the United States.

Seven-hundred people experiencing or at-risk of homelessness are killed from hypothermia annually in the United States. Forty-four percent of the nation’s homeless are unsheltered. From the urban streets of our populated cities to the remote back-country of rural America, hypothermia - or subnormal temperature in the body - remains a leading, critical and preventable cause of injury and death among those experiencing or at-risk of homelessness. While homeless shelters can accommodate a large number of visitors, taking care of everyone is a constant struggle. Sleeping Bags for the Homeless was started in response to this growing need for warmth and comfort for those individuals who must brave the elements during the cold winter months. Money received from donations will be used to purchase head-to-toe, mummy-style sleeping bags that can protect individuals from below-freezing temperatures, making living and sleeping outside just a little more bearable.

 

You can also drop off any sleeping bag at our office:

5555 N Lamar Blvd. Ste. K117 Austin, TX 78751
