Support Real Change Vendors through food & art supplies!
Real Change exists to provide opportunity and a voice for low-income and homeless people while taking action for economic, social and racial justice. Real Change vendors find meaningful, low-barrier work selling the award-winning weekly newspaper.
To continue supporting Real Change vendors, we are asking for your support in the following ways:
- Help Fight Hunger with Real Change! Amid COVID-19, foot traffic and customers remain sparse and as a result, the income vendors depend on to buy food has drastically decreased. Please consider donating groceries to Real Change, to ensure vendors have access to food during this incredibly challenging time. To donate without leaving your computer, please visit our Target Wish List (tgt.gifts/realchangegroceries) which is pre-arranged to deliver to our office for immediate distribution.
- Gift Cards! Treat a Real Change Vendor to a restaurant-quality meal, or provide the opportunity to shop for favorite foods and groceries, basic necessities, hygiene products, and more by donating gift cards to Real Change! We recommend gift cards in the amount of $10-$50 each.
Art Supplies! Our much-anticipated “Real Change Zine” will be a published booklet filled with Vendor artwork, poetry, stories, collages, and more! Amid overwhelming adversity and uncertainty, this is a beautiful outlet for vendors to express their creativity and artistic talents. Help us ensure that every vendor who would like to participate and share their work with you, has access to art supplies! To donate supplies without leaving our computer, please visit our Target Wish List (tgt.gifts/realchangezine) which is pre-arranged to deliver to our office for immediate distribution.
Please send us a message if you have any questions or would like to drop off donations in-person at our office. We accept lightly-used art supplies and are happy to answer any questions!
