Please Support Your Local Homeless Shelters!

Sarah delivering hygiene kits to women in need

Every Christmas, Sarah and I drop off hygiene kits at local homeless shelters to assist the less fortunate.  This year we managed to supply a women’s shelter with 36 such kits, each of which consisted of shampoo, conditioner, and a bar of soap – all collected from hotels during our travels.  We encourage you to do the same while on vacation or away on business trips.  By setting aside the bathroom products provided by the hotel and donating them to a homeless shelter once a year you will be helping those in need while costing you nothing.

Below is a list of local shelters to which we have donated food and supplies and can verify that they are legitimate.  Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
