Help us help the clients of Streetside Showers, a non-profit organization that provides mobile hot showers and personal hygiene care to those in need.
During this year’s Change The World Allen weekend, we are collecting new or gently used clean men’s and women’s T-shirts as well as personal care items, such as razors, Q-tips, travel size toothpaste, mouth freshener, body wash or individual soaps.
These items will be distributed to those served by Streetside Showers. This ministry serves the homeless throughout North Texas at locations in Irving, Denison, Garland, Denton, Plano, and McKinney. To learn more about Streetside Showers, visit their Streetside Showers website.
Drop your donations from Tuesday, May 3, to Friday, May 20, in the Streetside Showers collection bin located in the FUMC Allen atrium.
You can purchase new T-shirts from Hobby Lobby, Wal-Mart, or other local stores. The shirts should be new or gently worn (clean in good condition). Sizes from M to XXL. Solid colors preferred. Sports logos okay but please, no offensive designs.
Personal care items can be purchased at at any local discount store. For example, Costco and Wal-Mart sell travel kits that run about $6 each.
If you order items from an online vendor (e.g. Amazon), you can have them delivered directly to FUMC Allen. Please order in time so that they arrive before Friday, May 20.
Many thanks to the Sojourners Sunday school class for hosting this collection.
