Meet Lex. We were fortunate to meet him during our 1/19/19 Donation Day event. He recently attained a job while volunteering at a homeless shelter (he is currently utilizing another shelter to stay at). His request was a watch and some clothing for work. Not only that but he signed up to volunteer with Street Cards too! This guy oozes generosity and we were honored to meet him.
Daniel was a participant in one of our live donation days in which our generous donors get to see their donations being given to the recipient via a live Facebook video. His response was emotional and genuine.

Todd and his wife haven't been able to find affordable housing in Minneapolis. With all of their income going towards staying in a hotel there is no money left over for food and/or clothing. Street Cards was able to donate $15 to Target to help relieve a very small amount of the financial burden they carry.
This fine gentleman is Kevin. He’s raising money for a new leg prosthesis so he can participate in a walk geared towards raising awareness surrounding homelessness in the US. WHAT A GUY! @streetcards_mpls was able to donate $20 for his leg as well as a free hair cut at Cost Cutters because his request was “I’d love a haircut!” Kevin deserves the support of his community. You deserve a fast and secure way to support him. Street Cards is the solution.
Meet Edward! He was in need of food so Street Cards was able to donate a $15 gift card to a Target nearby. His excitement and kindness are just a few reasons Street Cards is honored to be able to support our local community. Your small and quick donation using Street Cards puts smiles on the faces around you.
This is Abraham. Street Cards donated $15 to Target so he can get something as simple as a belt. He said his biggest struggle has been finding county resources to help him get off the streets. Street Cards' website would be the perfect platform for social workers and case managers to offer their services and find clients to work with. Let’s support or community in a new way that helps on a person to person basis.
Meet Vern, the perfect person to combat the belief that people experience homelessness due to a lack of effort. When asked what he needed, Vern asked for work. Street Cards was able to donate a Target Gift Card to him. We hope to provide job resources on our site soon!

Michael was a participant in one of our live donation days in which our generous donors get to see their donations being given to the recipient via a live Facebook video. Michael had a message for his donor and shared some of his story.
