Donations Still Needed to Beat the Heat
We still could use additional supplies to keep our neighbors safe. There are still hot days ahead!
Can you help with the following donations?
- POPSICLES, both regular and sugar-free. (For our guests and unhoused neighbors who have diabetes and other health related issues, we need this type of freezer pop.)
- SUN SCREEN (trial sized, if possible)
All donations can be dropped off at Interfaith Sanctuary: 1620 W. River St. Monday-Sunday 8am-8pm
And THANK YOU to all of you who have stepped in to help our unhoused neighbors in the heat of summer! You have donated an incredible:
~ 1,500 bottled waters
~ 3,000 popsicles (about 1,000 of those being sugar-free)
~ 50 straw summer hats
~ 300 travel-size sunscreens
Thank you for helping us keep our friends safe and cool during this intense heat!
Interfaith Sanctuary Shelter is home for a warm meal and a safe place to lay your head for all genders, races, religions, and sexual orientation. We are a sanctuary for families with children allowing them to find shelter together. We are a shelter full of hopes and dreams offering second chances and supportive services everyday.
Interfaith Sanctuary by day is a home too: preschool learning, parenting classes, case management support, housing services and nutritional support.
We are also home for our senior population where finally they have a safe space to be all day and the ability to receive the care and support they so very much deserve.
We are a home of second chances for our unemployed, our mentally fragile, our friends struggling with addiction. Our building by day becomes a sanctuary of learning, recovering, growing, creating and moving forward towards a better life
