Bring Back Hope Project

The SOS Bring Back Hope Project collects unwanted or surplus outdoor gear (packs, tents, sleeping bags, tents, tarps, etc.), basic outdoor clothing (coats, rain gear, boots, etc.), hygiene products (shampoo, disposable razors, deodorant, etc.) and distribute these items to the homeless and seriously ill. Here is a full list of what we can accept: click here.

We want to make the days more bearable and the nights survivable for the seriously ill and the homeless men, women, and youth as they struggle to regain self sufficiency.

We distribute these items through:

  • Distribution events

  • Shipments to facilities and agencies that serve the homeless throughout East TN

  • Street outreach
