Spring towel, toiletry and luggage drive
Benefiting local foster youth
United Way’s Women United is collecting items needed for the Foster Youth Emancipation Basket program. Many foster youth emancipating from the system do not have necessary household items to get started on their own, and we want to help make that transition a little bit easier.
Please join us by donating towel sets, toiletries and new or like new luggage for more than 200 foster youth. Items collected will be included in baskets with other items donated by community groups.
Ways to get involved:
1. DONATE FROM OUR AMAZON WISH LIST and enjoy the ease and convenience of shipping directly to United Way on your behalf
2. Purchase items on your own and drop off at United Way (10389 Old Placerville Road, Sacramento, 95827) through April 17.
3. Join us for a volunteer event on April 17 to prepare the items to be dropped off with local foster youth.
Donations of bulk toiletry items are welcomed or complete kits described below.
- 1 bath towel
- 1 hand towel
- 1 wash cloth
- Body wash
- Emergency kit
- Grooming kit
Luggage (new or like-new):
- Carry-on size bags
- Duffle bags
Last year we collected over 300 towel sets! See last year’s total results here.
We need your help putting these baskets together for the foster youth!
