Project Details

Create a memorable gift for a family moving into a new home. Families coming from shelter often only have some clothing and a few items from their previous home. When they move to a new place they need some basic items to get settled.

SHS is seeking organizations and groups to sponsor "Welcome Home Baskets" for families as they enter the Family Housing program. Volunteers provide a $20 gift certificate to a discount store like Target and additional household items. Baskets items should total no more than $50. A list of possible items is below.

  • Laundry soap
  • Dish soap
  • Toilet paper
  • Paper Towels
  • Toilet brush
  • All-purpose cleaner
  • Sponges or scrub brush
  • Dishcloth and towel
  • Shower curtain, liner, and rings
  • Bathroom rug
  • Broom and dustpan
  • Mop and bucket
  • Wall clock and batteries
  • Thermometer
