Washcloths provided for homeless shelter

As we’ve gotten to know the staff at the High Ground shelter in Minneapolis, we’ve learned about some of the shortcomings in the supply system. No doubt the need is great and the resources are scarce! One of the security staff mentioned they could really use washcloths for the men staying in the overnight shelter. There’s a system to ‘check out’ a towel and washcloth, but its difficult to maintain and the washcloths disappear. We have a connection (thanks, Larry D!) that allows T2NL to buy product from Sysco at good rates. So, in this instance we bought and provided 300 new, white washcloths for the shelter men. Since then, we’ve continued to provide shampoo and bars of soap whenever possible.
