It seems that the cold and flu season has finally hit Richmond.  All around us, folks are coming down with yucky illnesses that are so hard to stop from spreading to others.

Because of the nature of our safe house, families living under the same roof share more than their understanding to each other’s situation.  Both adults and children have been affected with all kinds of difference illnesses, and our supplies in our medicine cabinet are running low.  We are also using up our cleaning supplies at a record pace, trying to keep the house germ free.

We are in great need of over-the-counter medicines and cleaning supplies, such as:

  • Cold Medicines for Adults & Children – both day and nighttime remedies
  • Acetaminophen / Ibuprofen – for both adults & children
  • Cough Medicines
  • Tissues
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Cleaning Supplies with Bleach (wipes, sprays, etc.)
  • Paper Towels

If you and/or your group can help us out, that would be wonderful.  Donation drives can easily be set up among your workplace, faith group, school, or community organization.  No donation is too small!!

Please contact Jodi Ottaviano, Development Manager, directly at jodi@safeharborshelter.com for more information.

Thank you, and stay well!
