Shower Kits Needed
Help someone on the street with a warm shower
In addition to providing Welcome Home Kits to people leaving homelessness by getting their own apartment, we provide Shower Kits for those on the street. The idea was generated when we received a large donation of trial size toiletries. Volunteers put together small paper bags with a trial size soap, shampoo and body lotion.
Our ministry partners at Market Square Presbyterian Church (MSPC) have a program distributing shower passes to people living on the street, so they can get a shower at the downtown Harrisburg YMCA. We provide these bags to MSPC and they give them out to folks receiving a show pass. Everyone has been most grateful for the shower kit.
Care to help us make more?
- Donate your left over travel size body soap, shampoo, conditioner or lotion and we’ll find volunteers to put kits together.
- OR pick up bags at our office and have you or your group put the bags together. Decorating the bags, such as those pictured, is optional.
Contact Steve Schwartz, Director of Development, at (717) 230-9550 or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for dropoff of your travel size toiletries or pick up of bags.
