Last week while scrolling through my Facebook page I came across an article from the Huffington Post, that really shook me to my core. In my community the homeless youth population is very large, and they are struggling. Being a female, and homeless can be even worse when your period arrives. Not having the proper supplies or means to take a shower is in no way comfortable or right. I posted on my personal page that I really wanted to raise awareness for this cause. I am working together with two amazing friends to set up an event and start collecting supplies to donate to local women's shelters, outreach groups and the Salvation Army.
As a local business I really wanted to go above and beyond! So the idea of "Fill the Tote" was created!
For every tote filled I will donate a portrait session to a family in need!
What can you donate? Great question! These are the items with greatest need:
If you want to help fill the tote please contact me today!
Want to join the Facebook event, and see other drop off locations? Find it here!
Are you not in the Rochester area, and want to know how you can help? Reach out to your local shelters, figure out what the needs are! Together we can make this an amazing drive!
