Help! help! HeLp! hElP! HELP!
Covid-19 is something that no one can predict the outcomes, the damages, and long term effects it will have on any community as whole. Quite frankly, we know what it will do to the youth and families we serve. Which is why we are doing what we can and we are asking for your help.
We have recently put together a list of male and female hygiene products, non-perishable food items and basic needs items, this list can be found below. We are asking for monetary donations so that we can go out and bare the chaos to be able to provide these items to youth and families we know are in high need of assistance, with the remaining items going into the community at large.
If you look around your house and see you have items to spare, you are welcome to drop the items off at the drop box at our office or mail them to us (4 Briercroft Office Park).
+ Item list can be found below

*******Items purchased or donated will be sanitized and quarantined for 4 days before distributed to the community. In addition, if you prefer to drop off items opposed to donating monetarily, please call or text Megan at 806-300-2848. Items will be packaged by healthy staff with protective gear.*****
("A recent study found that the COVID-19 coronavirus can survive up to four hours on copper, up to 24 hours on cardboard, and up to two to three days on plastic and stainless steel. The researchers also found that this virus can hang out as droplets in the air for up to three hours before they fall. But most often they will fall more quickly." https://www.health.harvard.edu/diseases-and-conditions/coronavirus-resource-center)
Remember: your donation, whether monetary or tangible is a tax-donation!
