Results from Women in Philanthropy’s Spring Towel Drive
Hundreds of towels, toiletries, luggage collected for foster youth
United Way’s Women in Philanthropy spring event was quite the success! We collected 253 towel sets (one bath towel, hand towel and wash cloth), 48 pieces of luggage, and hundreds of toiletries for local foster youth preparing to emancipate from the system.
The towels and toiletries will be included in baskets that Sacramento County prepares as part of their Foster Youth Emancipation Basket program. The donated luggage is given to foster youth in United Way’s financial stability initiative that is working to ensure more households in the region, including foster youth living on their own, are financially literate and able to save for the future.
A big thank you to everyone who supported the drive and who came to the event.
