“Founded in 1970, Share Our Selves (SOS) has grown to become a model nonprofit organization providing the highest quality comprehensive safety net services to the homeless and low-income populations in Orange County, California. Initial services included food distribution, clothing and emergency financial aid for housing, transportation, prescriptions and children’s needs.”
GritCycle is proud to support “Share Our Selves” as our January charity of the month. At its simplest designation, Share Our Selves provides much needed health care for the homeless in Orange County, but they go far above and beyond the primary care.
Under their “comprehensive services” they provide one-on-one support to aid in self-sufficiency, there is a food pantry, financial assistance, financially fit classes, legal aid, tax assistance, and voter registration.
With their “seasonal programs” Share Our Selves provides back-to-school backpacks loaded with school supplies for our local students. And Share Our Selves helps make Thanksgiving dinner possible for families in need with Turkey Baskets supplying all the necessary groceries for the home-cooked meal.
Share Our Selves provides over 33,000 medical and dental visits a year! This includes children as well. We are honored to support such fantastic humanity.
Please join us in supporting Share Our Selves by riding in our Karma Rides this month:
Monday, January 4th at 10:45am with Alli Krupa + Sunday January 17th at 10:30am with Katie.
It is $10 to book a bike, but you can always donate more at the door. If you can’t make a Karma Ride, but would still like to donate we have spot up at the front desk.
LOVE FROM GRIT!
