INNER CITY SOUND

MISSION: WE HEAR YOU

INNER CITY SOUND BEGAN A CHARITABLE CHAPTER CALLED MISSION: WE HEAR YOU IN 2021, FOUNDED BY CEO DARRIAN KAYE AS A RESPONSE TO THE COLD WEATHER CRISIS AFFLICTING UNDER SERVED COMMUNITIES AND TRANSIENT INDIVIDUALS IN THE MIDWEST AREA.  MISSION WE HEAR YOU CURRENTLY OPERATES PRIMARILY IN THE FOX CITIES OF WISCONSIN AND THE TWIN CITIES IN MINNESOTA, WITH PLANS TO EXPAND RAPIDLY.

WE SOURCE OUR DONATIONS DIRECTLY FROM OUR COMMUNITIES BY RE-DIRECTING GENTLY USED ITEMS TO PLACES OF HIGHER NEED.  YOU CAN HELP US FIGHT THIS COLD WEATHER CRISIS TODAY AT NO COST TO YOU.  EVERY ITEM COUNTS.  PLEASE LOOK THROUGH YOUR CLOSETS TODAY AND DONATE YOUR GENTLY USED WINTER ITEMS TO MISSION: WE HEAR YOU.  WE ARE UNLIKE ANY CHARITY IN THE MIDWEST, STRICTLY ABIDING BY OUR DIRECT HAND TO HAND GIVE-AWAY METHOD.  THIS IS A NO WASTE OPERATION THAT ELIMINATES SYSTEMIC BARRIERS.  OUR BRAVE VOLUNTEERS TRAVEL TO THE NEED WHEREVER IT MAY EXIST THROUGH STREET CANVASSING, DROP OFF REQUESTS, ENCAMPMENT VISITS, AND MORE, UNTIL EVERY LAST ITEM IS GONE.  WE DO NOT RE-DONATE TO CHARITIES WHERE ITEMS WILL END UP ON A STORAGE SHELF WHILE PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING.  WE DO NOT REQUIRE AN ID, A VOUCHER, A SOCIAL SECURITY CARD, PROOF OF ADDRESS, PROOF OF EMPLOYMENT OR PROOF OF UNEMPLOYMENT UNLIKE MANY OTHER NON-PROFITS AND STATE RUN PROGRAMS, WHICH MEAN WELL BUT INADVERDENTLY CREATE BARRIERS TO ACCESS. 

 

WE ARE ONE OF THE FEW CHARITIES THAT ASKS NO QUESTIONS, BECAUSE OUR PLACE ISN'T TO JUDGE, OUR PLACE IS TO SOLVE A COMMON PROBLEM WITH A COMMON SENSE SOLUTION. 

 

THE ONLY WAY TO PREVENT A COLD WEATHER CASUALITY, IS TO PUT A COAT ON SOMEONES BACK, AND IT COSTS VERY LITTLE TO DO.

 

WE FUND THESE OPERATIONS OUT OF POCKET AT THIS TIME AND WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE ANY MONETARY DONATIONS WE RECEIVE, BUT EMPHASIZE PARTICIPATION IS FREE, AND CAN BE DONE BY DONATING YOUR UNUSED AND UNWORN ITEMS.  WE ARE IN PARTICULAR NEED OF WINTER GLOVES, KIDS CLOTHING, PLUS SIZES, AND HANDWARMERS AT THIS TIME.  IF YOU DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO TRANSPORTATION WE WILL ARRANGE A DONATION PICK UP TIME THAT WORKS BEST FOR YOU.  IF YOU'RE ABLE TO MAKE A DONATION DROP OFF, PLEASE CONTACT US FOR OUR DROP OFF LOCATION.
