Cleaning Supplies and Diapers
Are you looking for an easy way to help low income refugee families in San Diego?
This month, we will collect cleaning supplies and diapers which will be distributed through Welcome Home and License for Freedom, volunteer organizations which provide tangible items primarily in the El Cajon area, and raise awareness of the problems the refugees face. On March 2, they will begin a new “marketplace” where families can shop at no charge.
We are looking for a variety of cleaning supplies, including laundry detergent, kitchen cleaners, dish washing soap and more. Please be sure that caps are tight before leaving items in the barrel. In addition, we will collect diapers – any size, any type, any brand. Even if these families are entitled to SNAP/CalFresh benefits, these items may not be purchased using their food stamps.
For more information, please contact Barbara Pollack at (619) 224-3087 or email@example.com.
Please bring all donations to the white Social Action barrel in the front office lobby of the Temple, and members of the committee will deliver them.
