Care Kits for Homeless LGBT Youth

New Alternatives provides services to homeless LGBT kids in New York City. They are a small organization that provide food, clothes, and casework services to more than 700 kids per year.

Right now, they need help providing care kits, which include items like razors, deodorant, soap, and toothpaste. They only rely on donations for these items–they simply don’t have the funding to buy these items.

I am hosting a drive for these items in NYC through the month of March. I am accepting any and all unopened/unused toiletries. Travel-sized items are particularly appreciated. If you would like to donate, please contact me for more information.
