TSC Accepting Donations for the Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission

Last month was the first of our ongoing monthly lunchtime service sessions with the Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission.  All who attended reported sharing a wonderful experience and a deep gratitude for the chance to take part in this opportunity for community service.

Since we began our relationship with the Mission last year, many of you have asked about supporting the organization through donations and drives.  We spoke with Sue Volikas, the Volunteer Coordinator there, who provided us with a list of options.To that end, we will be conducting a supply drive from October 14th through November 18thThose wishing to do so may donate items from the following lists:

 Shower and Shave

  • Toilet Paper
  • Deodorant
  • Razors
  • Shaving Cream
  • Washcloths
  • Shampoo

 Cleaning Up the Mission

  • Bleach
  • Tile Cleaner
  • Laundry Detergent
  • Mop Heads
  • Vacuum Cleaners
  • Heavy Duty Trash Bags
  • Brooms

We will be setting up bins for collection of these items in the Technology Service Center starting October 14th.  Our goal is to deliver what we’ve collected when we drive over for our shift on November 21st.  If you have any questions, please contact Ben Jezierski at bjeziers@sju.edu, or by phone at Ext. 3386.  Thank you again for your service, and your desire to help make things a little easier for Philadelphia’s homeless community.
