Backpacks for the Homeless

posted Dec 12, 2011, 11:36 AM by Wendy Payson
Backpacks for the Homeless is a community project in which people from the community can buy/donate a used or new backpack for the homeless in our midst.  The backpacks can either be donated empty or filled with necessary daily items such as a blanket, shampoo/conditioner, toothbrush/toothpaste, soap, razor, winter coat, sweatshirt, sweat pants, socks, hat/gloves/scarf.  The Hampshire County Drop-In Center at 43 Center Street, Northampton, will be collecting backpacks for the homeless from December 11 through April 12.  For more information, call 585.0853.
