WHOSE HELP IS REQUIRED

HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Protection from the sun is vital to everyone and a basic need that is hard to meet for people who cannot afford lip balms, sunscreens and summer clothing.

DESCRIPTION

Organize a donation drive for items needed in the spring/summer:

Sunscreen • Sunglasses • Lip balm • T-shirts • Jeans • Yoga pants


ITEMS NEEDED

All items must be new.


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS


NEXT STEPS
