TEAM BRAKE DOWNS BY AREA (There will be teams assigned for each city that will be going out to give items, 3 days a week each day in a different area of there assigned city. The idea is to give back and help those with in your own city.

New York-(New York City, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, Albany)= (6 Teams)
New Jersey-(Newark, Jersey City, Trenton)=(3 Teams)

Each City will be broken down into sections so we can deliver to the areas with the largest consentration of homeless, there by reaching the largest number of people in need. Idea for a Kids in need day.

GROUP NEEDS (Apollo will work on getting these items)

1-Storage Space for items donated to be stored and sorted. (Paid up for 3 months).
Ideal situation would be storage site in each city.

2-Access to Van or Truck for each area to deliver items.

3-Donation site or wish list site for items needed

*Note this would also serve as a kick off for "Project Camelot" which is a long term project dealing with those who are houseless.
