Join us for the 2014 Don’t Walk By Annual Homeless Outreach Campaign! 

What: Don’t Walk By is an annual outreach event that brings together an army of volunteers to fan out across Manhattan each Saturday during the month of February on a search and rescue mission for the homeless. Volunteers seek to offer every single street person food, warm clothing, blankets and the opportunity to get off the streets and enter a shelter and residential program.
