Housewares for the Homeless
Attention Adath Members!
The Women of Adath and Hesed are sponsoring a fundraiser to help the homeless. Hennepin County social workers are currently working on placing homeless individuals in stable housing. Many of these people have experienced chronic homelessness for over six months and lack any of the basic necessities. As you can imagine, individuals who have been homeless for a long time have few belongings. Starting over, they often lack the resources to purchase essential items needed when moving into a new place. These items include things like: towels, bed linens, shower curtains, and pots and pans. It has been found that providing these items to individuals when they move in helps them feel ‘at home,’ and reduces the chances of them ending up back on the streets.
The Hennepin County team of social workers has suggested a move-in kit of houseware items would be an ideal donation. We would really appreciate your considering donating any of the following items by bringing them to the Adath and putting them in the bins provided. This will provide an opportunity for us to help those in need, fulfilling the mitzvah of matanot l’evyonim. Whatever you can give will be appreciated and is a tremendous help! Below is a guideline of items to donate.
Move in Kit Wish List
*Please note that this list is a suggestion, but please provide what you can and if you think of additional items, that is great too! Everything helps!
All donations will go to the homeless individuals through Hennepin County volunteer services.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Thank you for your generosity!
