Community Resource Day for the Homeless

 Snow Hill, Md. – The Worcester County Homeless Committee will host a Community Resource Day for homeless people or people at risk of homelessness from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on February 27 at Salem United Methodist Church, 500 2nd St. in Pocomoke.

The Community Resource Day is an opportunity for people to have one-on-one time with groups that provide services such as housing, counseling, treatment and health care.

In addition to the regular soup kitchen, people attending the event will also have access to personal hygiene products such as soap and toothpaste that are not normally provided at food pantries.

Donations are needed for the success of the event. Local businesses and individuals are encouraged to donate personal hygiene products, especially individually rolled toilet paper, paper towels, diapers and baby wipes. The items will be distributed at the Community Resource Day in December and at future Community Resource Days throughout the winter. Monetary donations are also accepted.

To donate or for more information about donations, please contact Donna Taylor with Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services, Inc. at 410-641-4598.
