With these everyday commodities the Hope Connections Club created 40 hygiene baskets to be donated to the Sunrise Shelter.
"Many people take these items for granted and do not truly appreciate the comforts it offers people." said Linda Rodriguez, the club's faculty advisor.
Hope Connections not only produced baskets for the adults but for the children as well. However, the baskets for the children are filled with crayons and toys rather than toothbrushes and soaps. The purpose of the trip to the shelter is not solely based on delivering the baskets, but it is a chance for the Logan students to spend time with those who less fortunate.
The next humanitarian endeavor that the Hope Connections will be tackling is providing money for needy families within the New Haven Unified District. Starting now the Winter Drive aims to support 150 families. Students and Staff can support this cause by adopting a family. This event will end on December 22nd.
Hope Connections is an outreach program of Shepherd's Care Ministries, a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization. Hope Connections provides training to various groups who desire to begin a Hope Connections style outreach in their communities.
