Community Resource Day for the Homeless

 
Snow Hill, Md. (October 31, 2013) – The Worcester County Homeless Committee will host a Community Resource Day for homeless people or people at risk of homelessness from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on November 1 at Atlantic United Methodist Church in Ocean City.
   
The Community Resource Day is an opportunity for one-on-one time with groups that provide services such as housing, counseling, treatment and healthcare.
 
In addition to the regular soup kitchen, Share the Harvest will be at the event to give way a limited number of free bags of food.  They are available on a first come, first serve basis.  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.  Finally, Atlantic General Hospital will be on hand to provide free flu shots. 
 
Donations are needed for the success of the event. Local businesses and individuals are encouraged to donate personal hygiene products. The items will be distributed at the Community Resource Day in October and at future Community Resource Days throughout the winter. Monetary donations are also accepted.
 
 
To donate or for more information about donations, please contact Melanie Windsor with Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services, Inc. at 410-641-4598 or Brittany Hines with Worcester County Health Department at 410-632-1100 ext. 1216.
