HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Rosie’s Place guests have always struggled to have the necessities they need to make it through the day. Since the onset of the coronavirus, stretching already limited budgets to pay for supplies has become even more difficult. We’re hoping you can help meet the need for these items by creating care packages we can distribute to the hundreds of women who visit us daily.

DESCRIPTION

Make a big difference by providing 6 art supplies in a ziplock bag to support art and creativity for one of our homeless guests.


ITEMS NEEDED

  • One-gallon size zip lock bags
  • Adult coloring book
  • Markers or colored pencils and pencil sharpener
  • Blank journal
  • Stickers
  • Pencil/pen
  • Activity book like Sudoku, word search or crosswords

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Due to increased demands on staff and heightened safety precautions, we have had to adopt strict guidelines for what items we can accept and how they can be delivered to us. Please make sure to follow the instructions regarding assembly and delivery to ensure we can accept your kits.


NEXT STEPS

Be sure to have all new and clean items.  Decide how many care packages you want to create--one or more are all welcome and appreciated.
