Donations Sought for Local Charity “Streets of Paradise” in Sarasota
Streets of Paradise (SoP) is currently seeking donations. For those unfamiliar with the organization, Streets of Paradise is a registered 501(c)(3) which primarily serves Sarasota and Manatee Counties.
SoP came about quite organically in January of 2018. A couple of guys with a bag of sandwiches, determined to connect with the ever-growing homeless faction struggling among us, set out to learn the stories of “the least of these.” A mission to bring awareness of homelessness within our community to the general population evolved into an outreach initiative comprised of hundreds of dedicated volunteers. It has become our practice to engender trust within the homeless community by meeting them where they live and supplying basic necessities to struggling recipients. Our regular events have become known for the friendly faces of caring people who hit the streets of Sarasota with delicious and nutritious home-made food, personal hygiene items, blankets, jackets, and so much more.
