Giving back is a holiday tradition for many families and organizations. This time of year, our cup runs over with toys, coats and blankets, and we’re so grateful!
There are dozens of coat and toy drives this time of year, so if you’re thinking about hosting a collection event for Family House, a paper product and cleaning supply drive is a great alternative.
Family House goes through a LOT of cleaning supplies and paper products at a cost of more than $700 a month, so it’s a HUGE savings when these items are donated to us. We were blessed to benefit from a few of these supply drives last holiday season that “raised” enough paper products and cleaning supplies to last us 9 months!
Contact Executive Director Renee Palacios at 419-242-5505 if you’re interested in hosting a supply drive for us this holiday season.
If you’re thinking about purchasing gifts for our families this holiday season, here are a few suggestions.
- Bus tokens
- Gift cards for Wal-Mart, Meijer or Target
- Gas cards
- Personal toiletries, such as body wash, nail care items and shaving products
- Laundry soap
Thank you so much for your generosity! Best wishes for a blessed holiday season from all the families at Family House.
