Do 1 Thing for Homeless Teens!

Please pass this on to everybody and anybody....

February 14, 2009 is Do 1 Thing Day

What is Do 1 Thing day you ask? It is a day where anyone nationwide shows their support for homeless teens as an individual, group, family or friends and does on one thing to help homeless teens.

The youth Group from Atonement Lutheran Church at 1542 E. Montgomery Ave this year have been involved in several ways in helping homeless teens. This fall they collected and assembled food packages and hygiene packages to distribute to teens on the street. They are currently collecting $5.00 fast food cards to distribute to homeless teens when it is extremely cold outside. This enables the teens to get a hot meal and a place to warm up for awhile.

For Do 1 Thing Day (www.do1thing.org) the youth of Atonement Lutheran Church are collecting and asking for donations of gently used business attire for teens to go on job interviews. Dress slacks, buttoned shirts, ties, suit jackets, skirts, dresses, dress shirts, dress pants, sweaters, men’s shoes, and dress shoes…anything you can wear to a job interview. The teens also need NEW undergarments such as boxers, underwear, bras, dress socks, stockings, and knee highs. Teens come in all sizes from petite to plus sizes so all will be accepted. And what would make a good impression on a prospective employer but a teen with good hygiene. So when you drop off your business attire and want to do a little something more we would be happy to accept and deliver any hygiene items such as: deodorant, mouse, hair spray, gel, brushes, combs, tooth brush, toothpaste, shaving cream, razors, cologne, hand cream etc.

We will be taking donations at the church from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m on February 14. 2009. We hope to bag and box the items and deliver them to the center on the evening of Valentines Day. What better way to show some love.
Thanks for your support! We hope to see you on Saturday February 14th.
