Rosie’s Place guests have always struggled to have the necessities they need to make it through the day. Since the onset of the coronavirus, stretching already limited budgets to pay for essential items such as toothpaste and soap has become even more difficult. We’re hoping you can help meet the need for these items by creating care packages we can distribute to the hundreds of women who visit us daily.
Due to increased demands on staff and heightened safety precautions, we have had to adopt strict guidelines for what items we can accept and how they can be delivered to us. Please make sure to follow the instructions below regarding assembly and delivery to ensure we can accept your kits.
