I visited the Lottie House, site of our next Nice On The 9th project. It is a drop-in center for people experiencing mental health challenges. They require visitors to be sober but I love their response to people who aren’t. “Try again tomorrow.”
I was only there for an hour but 3 pages of sign-in sheets were filled just in that span.
June 9th is a Saturday so if you’ve been waiting for a weekend to volunteer with us, now is your chance! We will be volunteering from 1-4pm and all volunteers must be at least 18. We will be organizing the library, sorting supplies in the craft room, and anything else they need us to do.
Comment below and I will send you an event invitation.
Can’t make it on the 9th?
We’re collecting the following items:
-SHOES!! They are in desperate need of shoes! Used and even VERY USED are just fine with them. Gently used tennis shoes are preferred but they will take others as well.
-New or used t-shirts, shorts, jeans, backpacks or bags (they said suitcases that roll are treasures)
-New hygiene products (soap, shampoo, feminine products, lotion, sunscreen)
-New underwear, leisure socks, and plain tees.
-Art supplies (regular or stock paper, drawing pencils, canvases, art erasers (white), craft kits)
-Packaged snacks (tuna packets, protein packs, granola bars, flavor ice)
-Tarps and bungees to provide shelter (pics 5 & 6)
We can shake our heads when we see another person on the news who was in need of mental health services, or we can do something about it.
