Looking for a way to give back this holiday season? Many of our clients are unstably housed or have newly moved into housing. We support them by finding housing and creating stability through our many services at the clinic location as well as SafeZone, our drop-in center for youth experiencing homelessness. In talking with our youth and staff, we have a better understanding of what the youth need most.
We are hosting a holiday party for our clients at Face to Face, where youth will take home a gift bag of treats and gift cards. This will allow them the chance to shop for something fun for themselves and give them a mode of transportation to do so. There are a few ways you can help youth this season.
Donate gifts for the holiday parties. We are looking for these items to give youth:
- Metro Transit gift cards ($10)
- Visa gift cards ($30)
Donate warm clothing. We will give out NEW winter clothing for our youth.
- Jackets (large and XL needed most, gently used is ok if in excellent condition)
- Sweatshirts (all genders)
- White t-shirts
Volunteer your time. We are looking for folks to help assemble gift bags, coordinate party details, and work at the party on December 12.
Please contact Joa Sevlie (firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-772-5591) to coordinate a donation drop-off or to learn about volunteering at holiday parties. Thank you for your generosity!
