Collect Toiletries for Care Kits for the Homeless
Hi Elphas!This is Joanna from Oui Finds, a soon to be launched social for-profit in San Francisco.I am a huge supporter of social causes including reducing homelessness (the other focus areas are the environment and empowering women).This holiday season, I’d like to ask those that travel and stay in hotels to collect & bring back the unused unopened toiletries. They can be reorganized and packaged as care kits for homeless youth & adults.My former co-workers who traveled a lot helped me gather a grocery bag full of toiletries one year.These toiletries can be dropped off at Project Open Hand on Polk Street in the Tenderloin. POH makes food to feed homebound individuals who may be elderly, frail or other reason; they also serve food at Senior Centers. I am a long-time supporter/volunteer of POH.Also Glide church collects toiletries too.Thanks for being part of the Bay Area community and helping others in need. Happy Holidays!
