HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Individuals and families coming out of homelessness have little or nothing to get started in a new apartment. That first trip to the store to buy basic essentials can be very expensive. Clients really appreciate a plastic laundry basket filled with practical everyday living items.

DESCRIPTION

Hold a drive for household essentials and fill laundry baskets with things like:

Trash bags, cleaning supplies, paper products, laundry detergent, shower curtain liners, scissors, broom and dust bin, small plastic cutting board and a can opener.

Assemble these items into the basket and deliver to New Life Furniture Bank of MA for a tour and talk.


ITEMS NEEDED

Clients really appreciate a plastic laundry basket filled with practical everyday living items such as:
