Since I started my business as a professional organizer I have been a supporter of The Hope Alliance , which serves as a domestic violence and prevention program for Williamson County. I have encouraged my clients to take the items they are donating there or to the Round Rock Serving Center which has partnered with the Hope Alliance to store donated items and sell what is not used in their Thrift Shop. I have taken hundreds of pounds of clothing and household items from my clients to both locations, and have tried to support these non-profit groups by spreading the word while encouraging my clients to let go of items that can serve someone in need.
The Hope Alliance is now in severe need of full size toiletry items–especially shampoo, shower gel, toothpaste, lotion, deodorant, razors, feminine hygiene products, and hand sanitizer.
When women and children arrive at the Hope Alliance they often only have the clothes on their backs. They are given a bag full of the necessities or personal care items. Because the stay can be several weeks long it’s important that each woman has a full size bottle of shampoo, toothpaste, etc.
Although I do my best to help the center, I feel like I can do more. So I have “organized” a Toiletries Drive for the Hope Alliance. From now through August 31st you can drop off new full size bottles of shampoo, shower gel, toothpaste, lotion, deodorant, razors, feminine hygiene products, and hand sanitizer to one of three locations.
