About The Event
Join us for a Donation Drive & Volunteer Event to help spread hope for the holiday season! We'll be spreading hope in 3 ways: making outreach/ hygiene kits for the homeless, holiday cards for the elderly and collecting children's books to send to our neighbors in the Bahamas.
1.) Help us spread hope to the homeless by donating the below items to create outreach kits for the Lord's Place to distribute.
All volunteers are asked to bring what they can from the below list:
- Toothbrushes w/ covers
- Men's & women's deodorants
- Small combs
- Toothpaste (travel size)
- Body washes/ bar soaps (travel size)
- Shampoos (travel size)
- $5 gift cards to: Publix, Walgreens/CVS, Fast-food restaurants
2.) Get crafty at our holiday card station and make homemade cards that will be hand delivered to local assisted living centers. This will be fun for all ages! An estimated 60-70% of seniors living in assisted care facilities never have visitors. Help us spread holiday hope by crafting a card with love. All supplies will be provided.
3.) Spread hope to our neighbors in the Bahamas this holiday season as they continue to recover from Hurricane Dorian. Along with hygiene items for the homeless, we're asking volunteers to pick up a children's book, if possible. All books will be given to the Eagles Wings Foundation to transport to the Bahamas on a large barge they're using to bring holiday cheer and much needed relief to the Bahamian people.
If you cannot stay to volunteer, you're welcome to drop off donations of the above items at the Embassy Suites anytime between now and 12/15 at 1pm. Please mark your donations with a "Volunteers of The Palm Beaches" label/ note and bring them to the front desk.
ALL AGES ARE WELCOME! Ages 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
