The Community Resource Day is an opportunity for people to have one-on-one time with groups that provide services such as housing, counseling, treatment and health care. People attending the event will have access to personal hygiene products such as soap and toothpaste that are not normally provided at food pantries. Finally, Atlantic General Hospital will be on hand to provide free flu shots.
Donations are needed for the success of the event. Local businesses and individuals are encouraged to donate personal hygiene products, especially individually rolled toilet paper, paper towels, diapers and baby wipes. The items will be distributed at the Community Resource Day in December and at future Community Resource Days throughout the winter. Monetary donations are also accepted.
To donate or for more information about donations, please contact Melanie Windsor with Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services, Inc. at 410-641-4598 or Jennifer LaMade with Worcester County Health Department at 410-632-1100 ext. 1154.
