“I’m from nowhere, but I am everywhere.
I am going nowhere, but I am getting somewhere.”
- Our personal friend, Harley
We met Harley at the pier in Newport Beach, California earlier this year. Our desire to help him stemmed from providing basic necessities here and there to wanting to do much more; not only for Harley, but for the entire homeless community in our immediate area, country, and world.
We are two high school students wanting to make a difference in the lives of many unknown friends. Even if we cannot make a dramatic difference in their lives, if we make their stay on the streets a little more bearable, we have done our job. We decided to form our charity, “Knapsacks” because we saw how people overlook those without a permanent home. This struck our hearts because despite the circumstances that got them on the street, despite their appearance, they are still people. They still have all the basic needs as everybody else.
The mission of Knapsacks is to provided basic necessities to the homeless. Through donations, we will fill knapsacks with toiletries and other items such as socks, t-shirts, and blankets and distribute them to individual homeless people, as well as shelters and soup kitchens.
Please support us in our effort to aid to help those on the streets. If you would like to contact us, feel free to email us at any time. We will respond as soon as possible.
