Move-In Totes and Welcome Baskets Needed
With the pandemic continuing indefinitely and the need for supportive housing growing, we are moving forward with many new intakes. Program staff across our organization have told us that this is their biggest need for our residents right now! Many people come into our programs with few personal possessions due to the challenges of homelessness. By donating a Welcome Basket or Move-In Tote, you can help start them off right on their journey of stability and healing.
If assembling a Basket or Tote seems daunting, you can still help by funding a Welcome Basket for $100, or a Move-In Tote for $200 and our staff will do the shopping for you.
A Welcome Basket includes a laundry basket with the following:
Flat and fitted twin sheets, pillow and pillow case, blanket (comforter, quilt, winter blankets), hand & bath towels, toothbrush and toothpaste, shampoo and conditioner, bar soap, deodorant, and a coffee mug. Some extra items that are also appreciated but not necessary include a lint roller, a 4x6 picture frame, lotion, and a journal.
A Move-In Tote includes a large tote (recommended size: 44 gallons) with the following:
1 roll paper towel, 1 box facial tissues, 4 rolls toilet paper, 1 container disinfecting wipes, 1 bottle multi-purpose cleaner, 1 bottle toilet bowl cleaner, 1 toilet bowl scrubber, 1 box of large garbage bags, 1 bottle laundry detergent, 1 bottle hand soap, 1 bottle dish soap, 2 sponges, 2 dish cloths, 4 plastic plates, 4 plastic tumblers, 4 sets of cutlery, 1 kitchen towel, 1 shower curtain, 1 package shower curtain rings, 2 hand towels, 2 washcloths, 3 bars body soap, 1 deodorant, 1 tube toothpaste, 4 toothbrushes, 1 floss, 1 bottle shampoo, 1 bottle conditioner, 1 box assorted bandages, 1 box rolled gauze, 1 roll medical tape, 1 box gauze pads, 1 box alcohol prep pads, 1 tube antibiotic ointment, 1 tube hydrocortisone cream, 2 lightbulbs, 1 blanket (twin or queen), 2 bath towels, 1 bed sheet set (twin or queen).
