A Message From Our Non-Profit Member Student Support Network
Dear Family, Friends and Neighbors,
We are taking the liberty of reaching out to all of you and ask for your help – our students in poverty attending Baltimore County Public Schools and their families are also running out of essential supplies that are not paid for by food assistance programs.
The inability to wash one’s body or clothing or dishes, or to not have diapers or feminine care supplies, are additional stresses they now face in addition to hunger and food insecurity. These items are critical for general health and well-being, especially now.
Yara Cheikh has kindly agreed to have her house be a drop-off point for these essential supplies, which will then be distributed along with food at our Student Support Network distribution events.
If you have already donated, thank you so much!
If you would like to donate, you can:
- Drop off essentials at Yara’s house, Yara Cheikh, 525 St. Francis Rd., Towson, MD 21286-1327 – the attached photo shows the green cooler in front of her door for drop-offs – or you can place them on the black bench next to the cooler. Note: volunteering to deliver items to a non-profit is one of the activities excluded from Governor Hogan’s order on 3-30-2020
- Order online and mail supplies to Yara at the address above.
List of items needed (we know some are hard to find but are trying…)
Laundry Detergent, including pods
Toothpaste and toothbrushes
Deodorant (men and women)
Feminine care supplies, tampons, pads
