Offsite Assembly Projects - Laundry Detergent Urgently needed
Neighbors, Inc. serves the community in Northern Dakota county who might be experiencing emergency or food insecurity. In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are focusing our efforts in serving families through our monthly food shelf. Residents can call in to request assistance, we will pre-pack food and personal care items to be used in the coming month. We are serving an average of 40 households a day. One of the items in high demand is laundry detergent. Volunteers who are willing to purchase supplies can break down bulk powdered (or pods) laundry detergent into snack or sandwich size baggies for distribution. When you are able to drop these packages off, please label the boxes as "Laundry Detergent," and we will add labels before distribution.
COVID Assembly Project Directions are on our Neighbors Website:
- Gather supplies - Bulk detergent (any brand works, pods are popular too) & ziplock baggies.
- Fill baggies with detergent. Be sure to allow room so that the bags comfortably seal.
- Package in a box, label the outside with with laundry detergent and your name and address.
- Drop off can take place Monday - Friday from 8:30 - 12:00 and 1:00- 4:00
