An article in my local paper today says that The OUR Center’s hospitality center, kitchen and pantry needs items. I’m sure your local shelters and food banks need supplies and help too!
Declutter your pantry, closets, drawers, garage shelves, etc. and you may find plenty of overstock to share, like: coffee mugs, napkins, toilet tissue, plastic baggies, dry erase and permanent markers, stainless steel spoons and forks, packing tape, paper towels, towels and trash bags.
Their day shelter needs rain ponchos, shaving cream and razors, toothpaste and toothbrushes, feminine hygiene products and deodorant.
The center’s clothing bank needs gloves, plastic and vinyl tarps, socks, sleeping bags and large trash bags too.
The food banks can use food, but also your physical help to sort and stack items.
Dollar type and buy-bulk stores are great places to get a big bang for your buck to take new to these needy places as well.
In other words, jump in and help out as you can each month. Others will be very grateful.
