Help homeless parents create a "home" for their children. Collect personal care products and cleaning supplies for new families entering Family HomeStead's Emergency Housing Program. Help the family set up housekeeping by providing essential supplies that cannot be purchased with food stamps.
This project is ideal for businesses, service groups, faith-based institutions, scout troops, etc. and can be done at any time of the year. Personal care items are as follows:
toilet paper, body soap, adult and children's toothbrushes, toothpaste, men's and women's deodorant, shavers and shaving cream, body lotion, combs and brushes, feminine hygiene products, shampoo and conditioner, and laundry detergent.
Cleaning supplies include: buckets, mops and brooms, duspans, dish soap (NOT diswasher soap), Comet or other abrasive cleanser, toilet bowl cleaner and brush, rubber gloves, all purpose cleaner (like Mr. Clean), glass cleaner, and sponges.
Please provide family-size items only -- no hotel-size items or 50-pound tubs of detergent. Contact Shalene, Director of Volunteers and Development at Family HomeStead prior to any collection to learn what items are currently most needed.
