Help us show tent city a little love! You may never see your 500 neighbors who live in the outdoors all year ‘round, and you may not see how much they need help with basic items just to live.

Through our Togetherhood project, you can provide them with food, clothing, camping gear and hygiene products by dropping off these items at the Downtown Express YMCA, 101 Church St on the Big Spring Park East side of the Huntsville Utilities Building by Dec. 10. Here is a list of items that is being requested.
