These nonprofits distribute information on the free services they provide along with gifting essential items, such as backpacks, blankets, books, diapers, first aid kits, hygiene kits, pet food, school supplies, soap, socks, thermometers, toilet paper, toothbrushes, toothpaste, towels, and underwear. The festival additionally provides free food, entertainment, and prizes to those in attendance.
