The Baird Survival Bag was kick started in November 2016 to help out a homeless man named Terry. A 35 year old man who stood by the entrance of a 7-Eleven during the coldest days of winter opening doors for customers asking if he could have a warm cup of coffee. Always polite and had a big smile on his face.Alan Baird, our co-worker, wanted to help him get back on his feet and get him back onto the road of success. That’s when the Baird Survival Bag was created.
With a goal of 10 bags, or $350, Alan was able to raise over $5000 through a Go Fund Me page set up for him by another co-worker. We were able to collect, build and deliver 100 Baird Survival Bags for the homeless right before Christmas in 2017.
