Teen Voice to collect essential items for homeless families

During the month of January the Teen Voice Leadership Club through its “Project Humankindness” is seeking community support to collect essential items for homeless adults and families.

Such winter accessories as new socks, scarves, gloves and beanies; such grooming items as nail clippers, disposable razors, combs and hair brushes; and such hygiene items as bars of soap, tooth brushes and unused travel sizes of hand sanitizer, lotion, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner and deodorant may be donated at these locations:

  • Buena High School – Mrs. McGavren in Room 61
  • Cabrillo Middle School – Mrs. Knowles in the Counseling Office
  • Foothill Tech High School – Mr. Weldele in Room H-104
  • Ventura High School – Ms. Frias in the Guidance Center
  • Ventura City Hall – Mario Robinson, Room 226

The deadline for donations is January 30. A few days later the items collected will be delivered to two agencies: Catholic Charities in Ventura and the West County Winter Warming Shelter (serving Oxnard and Ventura families.)

“We welcome contributions by all our students, residents, city employees and businesses and thank them in advance for their support in helping Teen Voice meet its goal of helping Ventura’s homeless people,” said City of Ventura Youth Programs Supervisor Mario Robinson who is Teen Voice Advisor.
