Tent City

Tent City graphicHelp us show tent city a little love! More than 500 homeless folks live in the outdoors all year ’round in Huntsville, and they need help with basic items to live.

Please drop off your donated items at the Downtown Express YMCA, 101 Church St on the Big Spring Park East side of the Huntsville Utilities Building by Dec. 10.
