SEVCA's Care For Kids & Families Collection Drive


SEVCA's "Good Buy" Thrift Stores are now offering customers the opportunity to give to local kids and families in need and get something back at the same time. Now through December 20th, everyone who donates personal care items to SEVCA's "Care For Kids & Families" Collection Drive will receive 10% off any purchase at the Good Buy Stores. Diapers, baby formula, shampoo, and toothpaste are just some of the items urgently needed by local homeless shelters and food shelves to distribute to families in need. The organizations that will distribute the items collected are the Upper Valley Haven in White River Junction, Our Place Drop-in Center in Bellows Falls, and the Springfield Family Center in Springfield, Vt. They offer groceries, meals, and shelter to hundreds of families in crisis every month, but often come up short when it comes to providing the personal care essentials that most people take for granted. Items needed for the Care For Kids & Families Collection Drive include the following: disposable diapers (Sizes 3,4, and 5); baby wipes; infant formula; baby lotion and powder; shampoo and conditioner; toothpaste and toothbrushes; deodorant; soap; feminine products; tissues and toilet paper. Customers may shop when they drop off their contribution, or use their 10% discount during a future visit. The location, hours, and contact information for the stores can be found at www.sevca.org/thrift-stores/locations or by calling SEVCA at (800) 464-9951.
