As part of the Public Service Week events, the Women and Gender Caucus at the Harvard Kennedy School is organizing a donation drive for travel-sized toiletries. We'll be using these toiletries to put together hygiene kits for the Sisters of St. Joseph's shelter for victims of sex trafficking. These kits help women in the first few days at the shelter.
Three ways you can help:
Contact a hotel to ask for a large donation of their travel size toiletries, then arrange pickup and bring them to school before Friday--we will have donation boxes across campus.
Make a donation: We will have received lots of shampoo, soap, conditioner and lotion from hotels...We will still NEED toothpaste and toothbrushes--just the simple travel-size that are a $1 a piece at CVS. We would still welcome any other toiletries, but the toothpaste and toothbrushes will most certainly be the most-needed items beyond what we will have collected from hotels. All donations can be placed in the "toiletries donations" boxes across HKS. Locations:
Belfer Lobby (courtyard entrance to Belfer)
IOP front desk
In front RG-20
Come on Friday, March 30th in the JFK Jr. Forum from 1-3pm to help us assemble the hygiene kits.
