We are currently running extremely low on hygiene kits and are reaching out to ask for donations in order to make new ones. A good hygiene kit includes soap, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, a toothbrush, a razor, hand sanitizer and women's sanitary products. Also very much needed in the summer are water bottles, which we just ran out of, and bugspray.
All donations are deeply appreciated by NEOCH and the homeless members of our community who receive them. You can bring your donations to our office located at 3631 Perkins Ave. between 9 and 4:30 p.m. Feel free to call us with any questions about donating at (216) 432-0540 for Saturday hours.
Our donations drop off pretty significantly in the summer compared to the winter, but there are even more people sleeping outside today then there were in December. We really could use your help today with water and hygiene kits. We don't take clothing, but could use everything else. Here is a list of possible items.
