Fresh Start Donation Center Emphasizes Need for Winter Supplies
Throughout the month of February, Fresh Start (www.FreshStartHome.org) is focusing on winter supplies such as Kleenexes, sanitizer wipes, hand soap, and ChapStick. These items will help Fresh Start residents stay healthy during cold and flu season. Fresh Start offers donation times on Mondays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. During these times, staff is onsite and available to help unload donor vehicles. The women residents at Fresh Start, located at 6433 Havelock Ave., have first access to the donations. Any surplus of clothing donations will go into Fresh Start’s thrift shop, The Daisy. All of the proceeds from sales at The Daisy go towards funding Fresh Start’s programs and services.
Fresh Start’s mission is to empower women experiencing homelessness to overcome barriers to economic-stability by recognizing and utilizing their strengths. It is more than a shelter; it’s a goal-oriented program designed to support women who are working diligently to improve their lives.
