Welcome Home Baskets

2015-03-16

We have been housing people at a pretty quick clip these days. People who were once homeless or at risk of homelessness are moving into new homes which are often virtually empty. Outfitting a new home with cleaning supplies, pots and pans, and other essentials can get expensive. That’s why we need your help to give the gift of a fresh start with a Welcome Home Basket.

If you belong to a group that would like to help someone start a new life after losing their home, putting together a laundry basket filled with household basics is a way to help someone celebrate that new beginning. Help us share the joy. Contact drives@ihs-hawaii.org for details.

Thanks for being a part of the IHS family; your involvement can really make a BIG difference!
