Across our family of programs, we have several needs for hygiene, household and workforce development items. We invite you to work with your office, church, family, and friends to create kits to fulfill these needs for our residents and clients. There are three kits you can create:
1. Welcome Home Kits: These kits incude household cleaning items. Items are used by clients served at the CARITAS Furniture Bank as they transition from crisis into a permanent home.
2. Hygiene Kits: This kit includes general self care items including razors and shampoo. These are used by men and women served by the CARITAS Shelter and The Healing Place.
3. Workforce Development Kits: These kits include shoe polish, travel bags, razors, and more. Men in the CARITAS Works class use them as they learn job and life skills.
With your help, we will support each man and woman during an important time in their lives.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Director of Community Engagement Tiffany Terry at [email protected]
