Season Update!

We are excited about our upcoming Code Purple Season! It will be our 6th year in operation. We are continually amazed at how the community (YOU) helps us serve others IN OUR communities that are experiencing homelessness. 
We are busy planning for this winter and making sure each shelter is equipped with everything it needs to create a welcoming, warm, safe environment for those in need. Please continue to help us in our efforts. Plan on attending a training to find out more. You can also get a good bit of information off of our website  https://codepurplesussexcounty.com/ .
 
We are in need of several volunteers to fill coordinator positions. This includes Milford Volunteer Coordinator, Seaford Laundry Coordinator, Donation Coordinator, Georgetown Volunteer Coordinator and Food Volunteer assistants. Please let us know if you would like more information on what that entails or if you are interesting in serving in any of those capacities.
You can call and leave a message for Code Purple at 302-956-6006 and someone will return your call as soon as possible. 

Additional Day for Lunch, Showers and Laundry!

woohoo

 

We are pleased to announce that the CROSS will also be open Thursdays to serve anyone experiencing homelessness! We will now be open Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 11am-4pm! 

During this time we serve a delicious meal provided by a loving member of the community. This is also a time for our guests to get a shower and to do their laundry. Can you imagine how nice a shower feels after being in the heat all day and night? Then to be able to put on clean fresh clothes? It has been said to “make me feel human again”. This is what you are helping to provide with the meals and toiletries that you donate. We can not thank you enough! 

We always welcome donations of laundry soap, toiletries, and to-go food items. Here is a link to our donation list. Donation List
