Household Goods for Foster Youth

Foster youth are removed from their homes for various reasons, including abuse, neglect or abandonment. It is not uncommon to hear that a child may move 15 times to different homes. Their transition to adulthood is even more difficult. Support ends at 18 years of age, and earlier for emancipated youth. This month’s project is geared to helping foster youth who are aging out of the system and living on their own.

We will collect a variety of household items, including:

  • Dishes, silverware, glasses
  • Pots and pans
  • Small appliances- toasters, blenders, coffeepots, etc. (working)
  • Towels and linens
  • Cleaning supplies

Household items may be used, but clean and in good condition. We cannot accept furniture, TVs or large items. If you have those to donate, please contact South Bay Community Services directly.

For more information, please contact Helen Elias at helenelias1gmailcom or Barbara Pollack at (619) 224-3087 or rrbp@aol.com.

Please bring all donations to the Social Action barrel in the front office lobby of the Temple, and members of the committee will deliver them to South Bay Community Services for distribution.

Our ongoing collection of toiletries for Monarch School continues! The school, which is dedicated to homeless and at-risk children, has an exceptionally successful program. We help them with care packages from a list they specify. Needed are toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, hair gel, body wash or soap, and body lotion, all in regular sizes, not jumbo or sample size. Please be sure that all caps are on tight, and bring these donations to the Social Action barrel.
