Be a Community Organizer – Host A Donation Drive
You, your business or community organization can help our clients by hosting a donation drive for the important items they need! It’s an easy way to make a difference and give back to your community. Host a donation drive for:
Baby Food & Formula; Diapers & Wipes - These items are distributed to clients of our Baby First program, which supports at-risk and low income mothers to prevent infant mortality and low birth weight babies.
Food & Non-perishables – During Holiday Outreach, HELP distributes Thanksgiving food assistance to pre-qualified families to included a frozen turkey and the fixings for a traditional Thanksgiving meal.
Clothing – Infant through Adult – Infant and children’s clothing is distributed to Baby First clients. Professional attire is distributed to W.O.R.C. and Displaced Homemaker clients. Essential clothing and new underwear & socks are distributed by our homeless outreach team.
Bottled Water; Hygiene Items – These donations are distributed by our homeless outreach team. Suggested hygiene items include toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, razors, shaving cream, deodorant, Chap Stick/lip balm, combs, brushes, feminine hygiene items.
Toys – Toys are distributed during our Holiday Outreach in December. We recommend holding toy drives in late November and early December.
