URGENT APPEAL – the GLCC has asked the community for their help. Please donate tissue and hand sanitizer if you can to help homeless youth and others facing this unpleasant beginning to the cold/flu season.
Today, I received one of those phone calls that make my heart swell – another community organization saw that the GLCC was in need of personal care items for Cathy’s Closet and offered to share their surplus. Then they mentioned that the project was featured in the September issue of Equal Magazine. I had no idea! Obviously, I remember giving the interview, but I didn’t know it was running this month.
So what a nice surprise to find this two page piece discussing the project and including a shopping list. As you may recall, we launched this project in April to provide a tangible support for community members.
You can help
– make a donation via Crowdrise (secure donations through Network for Good which sends the money directly to the GLCC)
– organize a personal care collection with your workplace, school, faith community or even your family
– refer someone who might benefit from the project. you can even pick up the items yourself and take them to your friend, neighbor or family member. Call 412-422-0114 for details.
