Toiletries Drive

Whether we are talking about the women in The Women’s Room, our homeless brothers and sisters that stay in The Bad Weather Shelter, or our food pantry community, it is important to remember that we all have the same or similar needs.  The need for toiletries is no different.  The folks we help may be struggling financially struggling, dealing with unplanned expenses, or just coming up short, so being able to provide some basic non-food items is HUGE for us.

With this in mind, here’s the chance to hold a Toiletry Drive for the Friends In Deed community.  Here are few suggestions of things you can collect:

  • bars of soap
  • toothbrushes and toothpaste
  • shampoo and conditioner
  • deodorant
  • razors and shaving cream
  • toilet paper
  • hand lotion
  • feminine hygiene products
  • Dog and Cat food – while not a Toiletry item, many in our community have pets and are always grateful when we can provide them with a bit of food for the four-legged family member.

 

Collect a little of everything or focus on a couple of the items – it is completely up to you and your group.  Whatever items are collected will certainly be put to good use.
