We are currently working on "The Bare Necessities Project" The purpose of this first “Bare Necessities Project”is to assemble a survival packet for homeless teens in Weld School District 6. The packet will contain travel size hygiene items such as: hand sanitizer, wet wipes, tissues, shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, tampons, pads, razors, deodorant, comb or brush. Collection of items will begin immediately and continue until:
Saturday February 24, 10:00 am which time we will have a Potluck Brunch, sort and package the items for the youth and have a short ceremony of gratitude. Beginning February 25, we will begin the next “Bare Necessities Project” by collecting for homeless in Greeley. Another list of items will be provided at that time. We will then have another opportunity to meet for Potluck Brunch in the spring. Thank you in advance for supplying the items or asking your friends, dentist, barber, hairdresser etc. to contribute.
