In the initiative’s first event, the SFS community had the chance to meet with Meghan Freeback, founder of Simply the Basics and CEO of Project Homeless Connect.
One of my favorite things about The Smile Project is the opportunity to connect with other people in the nonprofit and social good space. As a grantee of The Pollination Project, I can connect with others who care about making their world better.
That’s how I virtually met Meghan Freebeck, the founder of Simply the Basics in San Francisco. Even just watching this quick video about their work gives you a comprehensive idea of the ways they are bettering their world.
Her work speaks for itself, so without further ado, allow me to share Meghan and Simply the Basics.
As three massive wildfires continue to burn in Northern and Southern California, sending clouds of smoke over the Bay Area, many locals may be wondering how they can help.
Simply The Basics is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing the homeless with basic hygiene products. On July 23, 2018, the Aquis Team spent a fun afternoon with Simply the Basics filling mildew resistant hygiene bags that included toothbrushes, toothpaste, lotion, combs, and soaps. We have since interviewed the founder, Meghan Freebeck, to share her story here!
