Items Needed for the Homeless!

During Compass’s winter week off, the UUCF church is converted to a hypothermia shelter for the area’s homeless. Once again they have asked  Compass families to contribute items for our homeless neighbors. On January 26, 31, and February 2, 7, and 9 we will be taking donations of:

  • Packs of new adult underwear and undershirts
  • Packs of new adult socks
  • Gently used adult coats, jackets, gloves, scarves, and hats
  • Gently used, sturdy adult shoes or boots (not formal or dressy)
  • Gently used adult pants, jeans, sweaters, sweatshirts, long sleeve shirts (not formal or dressy)
  • Back packs or duffle bags
  • Packs of new washcloths
  • Incontinence & feminine hygiene products
  • Throw blankets/afghans (not full sized bed blankets) for those who sleep in their cars

Note: children’s items are not needed, as families with children do not stay in this shelter.

Please bring your contributions to the Compass front desk. Receipts for your tax-deductible donations are available.  As a reminder, Compass classes do not meet this year on February 14 or February 16 while the facilities are used to shelter the area homeless.
