Don’t Walk By (DWB) is an annual outreach in New York City where volunteers walk through each street in Manhattan each winter on a search and rescue mission for the homeless. Volunteers seek to offer every single homeless person or those in need food, warm clothing, a blanket and the opportunity to get off the streets and enter a shelter and residential program. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the organizations like Bowery Mission, NY Rescue Mission and many others that exist to serve our homeless neighbors. If you are interested in learning more about the resources available and the needs of our homeless neighbors in our city, join others from Forefront in signing up for DWB. It will be an event that will change your perspective.
Members of Forefront Brooklyn are encouraged to sign up to serve on Saturday, February 20 in the downtown outreach in Manhattan. (DWB doesn't cover Brooklyn yet, only Manhattan.). However, volunteer slots fill up fast every year so check the DWB website to find out if volunteers are still needed on the 20th or any other Saturday in February.
