Fortitude Community Outreach volunteers gathered Wednesday evening at the Kankakee Train Depot to offer clothing and other supplies to homeless individuals in the community through the homeless shelter's mobile outreach operation. The purchase of shirts, jeans, underwear, sweatshirts, socks and shoes was made possible by grant money from the United Way's Kankakee and Iroquois Counties COVID-19 Community Response Fund. Along with the night's meal and clothing handout, hair cuts and hand sanitizer were offered as well.
