Hunger & Homeless Hygiene Challenge

As many of you are aware November is Hunger and Homelessness Prevention month and is quickly coming upon us.  One of our big drives that we do here at CAP is to do a hygiene challenge/drive throughout the whole month of October, to collect items and then distribute to those in need.

We are reaching out to local partners/area businesses to see if your group would be interested in this Hunger and Homeless Hygiene Challenge.  We ask that if interested, all you do is put any sort of box/container visible and ask your employees/consumers to donate items.  A flyer has been attached to this letter that could be placed on the box.  Flyer also provides the items that are most needed throughout the year.

If your group/agency will be participating in this challenge, we ask that you send confirmation back to us that you will be participating.  A simple reply email will work just fine; this will get you on our docket so that we can schedule a pick up time for these items.

Thank you in advance for any help and your participation in such an important cause.  With our collaboration; we will help to provide items to those who are unable to utilize their SNAP benefits or local food pantries for such items.

Should you have any questions or would like some more information, you can call Sandra Bain at 315-697-3588.
