Some students at KENT School of Social Work are organizing a Toiletry Drive to benefit the House of Ruth, there is a drop off box in the WGST department office. Read the e-mail below for more information!
Hello U of L Community,
We are organizing a toiletry drive to benefit House of Ruth. House of Ruth is a local nonprofit organization that provides support services to individuals with an HIV or AIDS diagnosis and their families. House of Ruth offers a wide variety of community based, client centered services ranging from summer camps for children to housing assistance. According to the House of Ruth website, in 1993, the agency served 8 families; in 2011, the agency served over 700 families.
House of Ruth is providing invaluable services to community members living with HIV/AIDS, and the need for services is increasing. Our goal is to help House of Ruth meet increasing needs for services by collecting toiletries which will be used by residents of House of Ruth housing units. We believe that this community based agency needs community support. Supporting this toiletry drive is a great way to show how much you care about our community and individuals living with HIV/AIDS and their families.
