“We Care” Kits to Aid Homeless/Community Service Project
Youth Services invites teens to help the homeless this holiday season by making kits of essentials to donate to our local shelters. Your kit should be a minimum of a gallon size, zip lock bag or drawstring size bag. Please feel free to decorate your bag letting someone know you are thinking of them, and you care. Some ideas to include in your kits; toiletries (travel size), feminine hygiene products, hats, gloves, socks, tissues, wipes, hand sanitizers, masks, band-aids, water, mints, $5 GC, granola or protein bar, fruit cup (spoon), flashlight, peanut butter crackers, etc.
Please contact Youth Services for an appointment to drop off your donations. We will be giving one hour of community service for every kit made. Please make sure you bring your completed community service form for approval (if needed). Should you have any questions, please call Youth Services at 203-389-3449 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
