This is The Van. The Van is operated by Aaron Reddin. <You can read his story there and all about the non profit he started up in Little Rock called The One Inc. The One Inc. owns a fleet of vans and their vans supply the unsheltered homeless in Little Rock with their needs (hygiene, food, clothing, even portable showers).
A couple of months ago, Aaron tweeted that he’d like to see more vans in more places and even named me specifically as to who he thought would be a good person to start one up. And I really liked the idea. The only problem was I was preparing to move from Central Louisiana to the Atlanta area at the time so it had to be put on hold.
Now, about four months later, I am preparing for the arrival of my The Van. It’ll be The Van Atlanta. We have a temporary site at thevanatl.wordpress.com but, I hope soon to have something a little cooler. Today you can follow @TheVanAtl on twitter and like us on Facebook.
If you’re looking to help out the Van Atlanta, the site will be updated soon with a needs list, places you can drop off said needs and you can always donate at theoneinc.org.
