Coordinating a supply drive is a great way to support Friends of Youth. Homeless youth often go without the basic necessities most people take for granted. In the struggle to find food and a safe place to sleep, homeless youth find it difficult to acquire basic items. Suggested items to include in a donation are:
Hygiene kits could include: -Deodorant -New Men's and Women's Underwear (All sizes) -Towels & washcloths -Toothbrush and toothpaste -Feminine products (tampons, pads)
Snack packs- non perishable items such as: -granola bars -fruit snacks -trail mix -fruit leathers -chips -reusable water bottles -cups of applesauce, -small packs of cookies or crackers ect
