Good Deeds Come in Small Packages
Discovery District toiletry drive to help homeless shelters
In a community partnership with Faith Mission, Friends of the Homeless and the Engagement Center at Maryhaven, Capital Crossroads Special Improvement District (SID) has launched a toiletry drive that runs through November 19.
“The downtown shelters anticipate record numbers of homeless this year and winter is right around the corner,” said Lisa Defendiefer, Downtown Safety Coordinator for Capital Crossroad SID. “Providing toiletries will go a long way to help the shelters meet at least some of the basic needs of every client they serve.”
Please gather up your new, unopened toiletries, as well as other personal hygiene items like soap, shower gel, shampoo, toothpaste, lotion, shaving cream, disposable razors, combs, socks, underwear or feminine hygiene products and drop them off at the SID office, 23 N. Fourth Street.
If that isn’t convenient, there are drop boxes located at the Capitol Square office building, Seneca Apartments, Tiano and Associates, Bricker and Eckler, One Columbus, State Auto, Ohio Education Association, Catholic Foundation, Ruggery Building, Midland Building, LeVeque Tower, Department of Insurance, Kappa Kappa Gamma, the Huntington Bank Building, and Columbus Chamber. The toiletry drive runs through November 19 so feel free to replenish the bins as often as possible. Good deeds really do come in small packages.
