- As a way to pay their nightly shelter fees, some of our clients perform simple tasks to help keep our shelter clean and tidy. We are currently in need of a vacuum and rug sweeper.
- Often our shelter guests arrive with nothing when they come to stay with us. Their greatest basic needs include new, unused: soap, washcloths, deodorant, toothbrushes, fitted sheets (twin size), pillow cases and feminie products.
- We are in need of serving spoons and general silverware (especially spoons and forks) for the Community Kitchen at our shelter facility.
- This is a unique request: Our computer systems and server require increased antivirus protection to more fully secure our agency’s confidential client information, among other things. In a time of cost-savings and budget cuts for our organization, we thought we would extend this as an option should someone be interested in generously funding such a necessary protection item. One year of Antivirus for our system will cost $1,400, two years will be $2,100. If you are interested, please contact Liz Bennett: (203) 292-5588.
Office related supplies are always needed.
