SETON YOUTH SHELTERS

PAPER SUNDAY

The first Sunday of every month we collect a variety of paper goods for the use of the girl's and boy's shelters. As you can imagine a group of teens can go through a lot of paper towels, napkins, tissues, toilet paper as well as copy paper. According the shelter manager the biggest need is paper towels. They also gladly take donations of toilettries especially individual size from hotels. Those are used by the Street Outreach Vans for homeless teens.

What else to they need? Visit the Seton Youth Shelters website.
