Interfaith Works is a nonprofit organization that helps individuals and families in Montgomery County move from crisis to stability. Our programs feed, shelter and clothe our neighbors in need while offering compassion and dignity to those in challenging situations. Our organization relies on the incredible support of volunteers who dedicate their time and provide supplies for activities in order for us to continue to enhance the lives of those whom we serve. We are so thankful because without volunteers, we would not be able to offer many of the services that are performed or delivered daily. We urgently need your help in collecting items such as toiletries, laundry detergent, sunscreen, hand wash, hand sanitizers, food, cleaning supplies, paper towels, etc. Here is a link to our wishlist: http://www.iworksmc.org/wish-lists/ Supply drives can be held offsite at your location of choice, and you may involve your family members, classmates, friends, coworkers and other associates. Our Communication Manager can also help design a flyer that you can utilize. Once you have collected the supplies, we can determine which program/residents from a particular shelter will receive the donations.
Are you wondering whether students can earn SSL hours for participating in a collection drive? If the supervising group - a school club or scout troop or youth group at a church or other faith organization is preapproved for SSL the students could earn SSL through their work with that group.
