Crocker Highlands Girl Scout Troop 30981 is collecting toiletries for homeless youth in Oakland. There are currently 1,700 homeless youth, ages 14-23, living on the streets in Alameda County. Our Junior troop seeks to provide some basic necessities to show the that we care. Hygiene supplies will be delivered to DreamCatchers Emergency Youth Shelter and/or the East Oakland Community Project.
We are requesting donations of unopened shampoo, conditioner, combs, brushes, toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, deodorant and soap. Full size or travel size are fine. If you don’t have travel-size toiletries to donate, consider purchasing a couple of extra items when you are shopping and drop them off at school.
This is a very easy way to help disadvantaged young people in our community. You can drop off your donations in a bin in front of the school office.
The campaign runs through December 20. Please contact Genice Jacobs at 415-298-0679 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Toys for Tots bins are awaiting your donations of new, unopened gifts for kids of all ages (including teens!) They will be here this week only (December 2-6). Let’s fill them to the top!
