While local schools get ready to "throw in the towel" at the end of their school year, we're encouraging them to literally throw in the towel! The Long Island Chapter is hosting a towel drive and all donations will go to the Mary Brennan Inn, the largest soup kitchen and homeless shelter in Long Island. (They are open to the public every day from 9:30AM- 2PM, not only serving a hot, nutritious lunch to the hungry, but a safe place for homeless to gather.) They even offer clean, accessible showers for any guest in need, and in order to provide this service, they need approximately 10,000 towels per year. That's where we come in! They accept new, regular size bath towels and beach towels. We will also be packing and wrapping the towels with travel size items such as soap, shampoo, and deodorant.
Especially as the hot summer months approach, let's help those in need stay clean!
