My sister recently emailed me about her experience with Mobile Loaves and Fishes which feeds the homeless. She and some friends travelled with them in Nashville for the first time last Wednesday. She will be going with them every 3rd Wednesday of each month. She was quite moved by the experience and ran into a need that is quite easy to fill. Although they were there providing food, the homeless kept asking for soap and toiletries of which they had none. They need the small containers (much like from a hotel) of soap, shampoo, conditioner, laundry detergent and socks (new or used).
If you'd like to declutter your cabinet of all those little toiletries from hotel stays, let me know and I'll email you her address. Or...if you have a donation for the foundation, just include these items with it. I'll make sure she gets it and in turn those in need.
I have a small tote full of these type items in my cabinet now. I will sort through and give to her the next time I see her.
