”Homeless Christmas Tree” Initiative
   November 20th - December 22nd
This Annual initiative is sponsored by the Lewis County Youth Bureau in support of the Lewis County Department of Social Services (DSS) as well as many other local agencies, who recognize there is a hidden epidemic that touches the lives of most of our citizens in one way or another.  This epidemic has to do with homelessness, and the lack of safe and affordable housing.  There are many reasons that families and individuals find themselves “out in the cold” including job loss, illness, addictions; and house fires.
Donated items are used for our “Homeless Bin” Project.  Each bin contains personal hygiene, kitchen and bathroom supplies, items needed when a family or individual “start over.”  Donations received from the 2016 initiative, enabled DSS to issue 35 bins to our homeless and economically vulnerable constituents.  Additionally, over 180 individuals and families, benefited from the donations through referrals from other local prevention awareness agencies and school districts. We were also able to assist 3 families that were displaced from house fires. 
Again, this year the “Homeless Christmas Tree” will be located at the Lewis County Chamber of Commerce office, located at 7576 South State Street, Lowville.  Donated items can be dropped off at the Chamber of Commerce beginning November 20th - December 22nd, Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm, or contact Penny Demo at 315.376.5411 to make other arrangements. 

ITEMS BEING REQUESTED FOR THIS INITIATIVE ARE LISTED BELOW
Bath Towels/Wash Cloths Scrub Brushes Diapers (all sizes)
Blankets (Twin and Full) Silverware Baby Wipes
Sheets (Twin and Full) Manual Can Openers Baby Powder
Mattress Pads (Twin and Full) Toasters Baby Shampoo
Pillows Pot & Pan Sets Other Baby Items
Laundry Detergent Cleaning Supplies
Dish Detergent Soap
Shampoo/Conditioner Tooth Paste/Tooth Brushes
Deodorant Toilet Paper
Paper Towels Shavers/Razors

Monetary donations will also be accepted and will be utilized to replenish homeless items that we run out of throughout the year, and to purchase Gas Cards from local vendors, that would be provided to other helping agencies who have consumers who have retained work, however have not yet received their first paycheck, therefore need a little help to get back and forth to work.

YOUR SUPPORT OF THIS INITIATIVE WOULD BE GREATLY ARRECIATED…THANK YOU!
