NATIONAL DAY OF SERVICE INITIATIVE - ANNUAL TOWEL DRIVE 2017
We will be collecting new bath towels from now til Martin Luther King Jr Day which is the National Day of Service. If you would like to collect towels at your center please let us know. New bath towels are a specific need for shelters in our area. This is the one item given to those in shelters for each person to keep for themselves. Last year we collected over 800 towels and distributed them to 5 different shelters and organizations that assist the homeless.
1. Mercy Shelter in Hartford,
2. South Park Inn in Hartford,
3. Friendship Center in New Britain,
4. McKinney Shelter in Hartford and
5. Journey Home also based in Hartford.
If you would like your place of worship to be a place for "new bath towel" collection let us know and we will get a container out to you! Email Aida Mansoor at email@example.com.
