What: Socks & Shampoo Drive, a seasonal collection of goods for donation
Where: Catalyst Ranch
When: Monday, November 5 through Friday, December 14
Benefiting: Sarah’s Circle, a Chicago non-profit serving women who are homeless or in need of a safe space.
We’re asking for:
NEW, cold-weather socks
We’ll welcome other greatly-needed items such as other warm clothes in size XL and above; and travel-size conditioner, deodorant and toothpaste. **A complete list of items sought can be found here.
Sarah’s Circle is a Chicago organization that has been serving women who are homeless or in need of a safe space. Located in Chicago’s Uptown Community, Sarah’s Circle has provided support for thousands of women since 1979. With temperatures dropping, their supply needs are more specific.
Sarah’s Circle provides an updated list of all items currently needed here. Though Catalyst Ranch is asking for specifically New, cold-weather socks and Travel-size shampoo, we will gladly accept any of these other listed items. Be aware of their stipulation:
*Because of limited storage space we only accept clothing in good condition and that is appropriate for the current season. Donated clothing should be clean and folded when delivered. Larger clothing sizes (XL, XXL, 3XL) are especially needed. We are currently only accepting clothing sizes 12+ and sensible shoes sizes 8+ at this time. Men’s clothing is also accepted.
Please consider visiting Catalyst Ranch for any of the events found here: Workshops and Special Events Open to the Public, and bring any Socks, Shampoo and other items to our collection box. We’ll bring all Socks & Shampoo Drive donations to Sarah’s Circle‘s Daytime Support Center at 4838 N. Sheridan Rd in the Uptown neighborhood after December 14.
