We have received so many generous donations for the women at our homeless shelter since the start of May! Community support has been so amazing – the women of the shelter appreciate all the items. A variety of items have been donated and include make-up testers, toothpaste, clothes, bed linen, socks, and food. It is so important that we are able to give homeless women and children the opportunity to meet their most basic needs. Many come to us in survival mode. A simple pair of socks, or some shampoo can go a long way with someone that has been worrying about where they will sleep or how they will get their next meal. A special thanks to Evolution Salon, Victoria’s Secret, Minot State University, and Mary Kay Cosmetics for their donations. A local middle school also arranged a ‘donations drive’ for the YWCA Minot! The middle school’s motto is to ’empower students’, and encouraging them to do charity work within their local community is the perfect way to do this. Below you will be able to see some of the donations individuals and businesses kindly donated!
