Join Us at Off the Streets, raising funds for our PADS homeless shelter!

Help us “hit the streets” by raising money for Fortitude to get yourself “off the streets”.  Choose either a 10am-1pm or 1-4pm shift on September 29 and we’ll send you to a location in the community.  You will appeal to your social network to bring donations until you reach the amount required to get you “off the streets”! 

  • Free tshirt
  • NO sign up fee
  • safe and approved locations
  • and absolutely NO public solicitation–you bring donors to YOU!
