Donation Drive | The month of march
The Lighthouse Young Adult Ministry here at Cornerstone is organizing a donation drive during the month of March for the Covenant House here in Anchorage.
We will be collecting travel sized items:
1. Shampoo & Conditioner
3. Toothbrushes & Toothpaste
For each category, we are collecting 500 items for a grand total of 1500 items to donate. Please help us reach out goal so we can bless the Covenant House!
WHAT IS THE COVENANT HOUSE?
Covenant House Alaska is the largest provider of services to homeless and runaway youth in the state of Alaska. Covenant House Alaska’s Shelter Services offer homeless, runaway, and at-risk youth ages 13 to 20 a safe place to stay and get help. The 60-bed shelter and intake center in downtown Anchorage meets immediate needs – a warm meal and shower, clean clothes, and the comfort of sleeping in a bed – as well as works to build a foundation of safety and trust that, for many youth, has been completely eroded by a life on the streets.
HOW WILL THIS DONATION MAKE AN IMPACT?
In 2017 the Covenant House ministered to 799 youth at its Emergency and Drop In Shelter. These items will go along way in serving youth in 2018.
