Stocking Stuffers for the Homeless

  

With the holiday season in full swing, we know that means more hustle and bustle than usual. Among the chaos, the season also reminds us to count our blessings and to give back to those less fortunate than ourselves. This Christmas, Smile Island is partnering with The Gathering Inn to give homeless members of our community a bountiful holiday to lift their spirits.

We would be so grateful if you would be willing to help us collect items that are highly desired to help the recipients meet their basic needs. We are requesting items that we can fit easily into stockings, such as:


GIFT CARDS

GLOVES
SOCKS
UNDERWEAR
HAND WARMERS
SHAMPOO/CONDITIONER
BODY WASH

DEODORANT

FEMININE HYGIENE PRODUCTS
RAZORS
BRUSHES
HAIR TIES
SNACKS

As an added allure, Smile Island is offering all of our contributors a chance to win a

$40 Target gift card!!

For every 3 items donated, you will receive an entry into our drawing.

We will be delivering stockings full of donations to the Gathering Inn hosted function at Bridgeway Church on December 20th. Our last day for collection is December 18th.

Thank you for your consideration to help our mission. Our staff will be doing their part as well by donating, and we will of course be offering toothbrushes, toothpaste and floss.
