Hello Dare 2 Care Crusaders:
We wanted to let you know that we are still open and running our Shower Trailer safely during this pandemic. In fact, we have increased our runs since so many of our most vulnerable guests are in greater need than ever before with the closings of public restrooms and beaches. We have implemented stricter cleaning and sanitizing procedures and are practicing social distancing. If you would like to help from a distance, we are in great need of medium and large men's underwear, small and medium women's underwear and we always need socks! You can ship them to the mailing address below or email Kate for other locations.
If you would like to volunteer with us, call us at 561-574-9603 or email Kate at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are so grateful for all your support. Off to shower and do the laundry!
Tim & Kate
After more than 20 years battling alcoholism, my childhood best friend and brother from another mother passed away as a result of this addiction. There were several good years dispersed throughout that time frame, many ups and of course many downs.
Tony was a special person, so often a very selfless person. In fact I dare say I cant recall any time he wasn’t a kind and giving person. In his prime he could have been a stunt double for Burt Reynolds, good looking, affable and always a gentleman. An infectious and inviting smile, Tony was loved by many. He was always willing to give and hesitant to take. In fact for 2 years he gave me his time and effort, night and day trying to keep my dream alive in the restaurant business. He refused to accept a paycheck time and time again.
In later years he found himself either near homeless or at times he was in fact homeless. Even in these conditions he never lost the essence of his nature. He would offer to help those around him with the mindset, “what do you need” even when he was without. During a recent hurricane, he refused to leave his friends’ side even though he was offered refuge from the storm. Imagine that, so dedicated to his friends, he would forsake his own safety.
In Tony’s honor, I would like to emulate his kindness and selflessness. Towards that endeavor, I am starting a program to offer showers and clothing to whomever may need it in our community. We have purchased a four stall shower trailer and truck.
This project is going to require a substantial financial commitment and with your help we can reach our goals quickly and begin to honor, respect, and revere those in our community who could use our help.
