Come together for a cause in May 2018

Basket.jpgHelp those in need by gathering personal hygiene and feminine items, or monetary donations. These items will help women and families with children temporarily living in the shelter, and families living in poverty.

It's easy! Here's how...

Make arrangements for your family, group or organization to fill laundry baskets, boxes, or plastic storage tubs with canned and dry food, paper products, cleaning supplies, and toiletries for families living in poverty and for the women and children temporarily residing at the Waypoint Services Madge Phillips Center Shelter.

Waypoint relies on community support of donations. Canned and dry food, paper products, cleaning supplies, and toiletries are needed year-round for the families we serve.

Donations accepted at:

318 5th St SE

Monday through Friday
8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
