Seva in the City- Spring Essentials for the Homeless

Seva in the City is a secular, non political event where we reach out to some of the neediest in our city. I have several meetup groups participating.

Objective: Uplift! Distribute Personal Hygiene items outside the Maxwell Meighen Centre (Salvation Run Homeless Shelter). We might visit other neighbouring shelters as well depending on turnout.

Agenda: Arrive at 9:00 AM, get acquainted, discuss issues surrounding homelessness, walk over to the shelter and dispense our pledges outside.

Pledge: Attendees are required to bring one of the items on the pledge list below. All the items can be purchased at a dollar store or Walmart. Suggested Amount to be spent is $10. Pls let me know what you're bringing in the comments section.


1) Hand Sanitizers * 10

2) Toothbrush * 5 and Toothpaste * 5- can be purchased for $1 Each so $10 in total

3) Disposable Razor * 5 and Shaving Cream * 5- can be purchased for $1 Each so $10 in total

4) 10 Pairs of Socks + 5 PB & J Sandwiches


Reminders

1) I would like us to be there by 9:00 am so please help us by arriving on time.

2) You're free to bring other items as well, e.g. gently worn clothes. Pls run all items not on the pledge list by me beforehand.

3) Dress Appropriately for the weather!!!

4) Pls let me know beforehand by updating your RSVP if you cannot attend so we're not waiting around for you.

      I guess I meant for the toiletries too

      Good question but I like handing those out one by one to avoid wastage. One person might need some razors but might have no need for a toothbrush
