Adopt A Famliy
You can assist The INN in creating a more inviting environment for the Guests at the family shelters or you can assist in the transition of a family into permanent housing. Two in particular projects include creating or gathering items for a hospitality basket or for a house warming basket.
Upon entering the shelter each family is given a hospitality basket, which includes a body towel set for each family member and all toiletries needed (toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, floss, soap, shampoo & conditioner, lotion, body moisturizer, brush & comb set). Hospitality baskets can be created for a family of 2 up to a family of 5.
