On Thursday, January 22nd, Be the Cause volunteers in the Houston area dropped off Toiletries and Hygiene items to the Healthcare for the Homeless – Houston program (HHH). The drive began towards the beginning of December and simply by getting the words out to their friends, putting up boxes around the Baylor College of Medicine and posting the collection sites on the web, supplies started to come in.
From what was donated, HHH was able to distribute 90 Hygiene Kits.
Below is a letter from the Director of Volunteer Services at HHH and a few pictures of the items.
How wonderful of Be the Cause to do a “Toiletries+++ “collection for Healthcare for the Homeless-Houston again this year– the third year! I am so sorry that we didn’t have our camera available when you and Naz delivered everything. We did come up with one for Friday afternoon, though, when three of our wonderful volunteers responded to my call to come help get everything packed into kits and boxed, labeled and placed so that our providers can have easy access to get the things out for our patients as soon as needed.
We made up about 90 hygiene kits with a wide variety of items. As a few of the items ran out, we turned to packing and labeling things by type to be visible and usable for single item selection in the clinic storage areas. I sent an e-mail to all of our providers to let them know what bounty is to be found. Just from my limited observation point, I am already aware of numerous things being put into the hands of our patients. We are ALL so appreciative!
I have included a couple of photos of the volunteers assembling hygiene kits Friday afternoon. Thank you for making this possible!
