VOLUNTEER

To celebrate our kickoff, we are hosting a volunteer project that is easy and fun for the whole family and can be done from home! We are asking volunteers to package personal hygiene bags that include any of the following new items:

  • soap

  • shampoo

  • deodorant

  • feminine hygiene products

  • toothbrushes and toothpaste

Simply package items in a zip-top bag any time between now and September 24, and drop them off at any of the following UWBG partners:

  • HOPE Center - (360 West Loudon Avenue, Lexington; September 24th or 25th, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.; please call 859.252.7881 upon arrival for contactless delivery)

  • Catholic Action Center - (1055 Industry Road, Lexington; September 24th drop off; Please drop off items at the far left door facing the road, and wear a mask during the drop off)

  • Simon House - (101 St Clair St #2, Frankfort; Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.)

  • Elizabeth's Village - (207 South Hamilton Street, Georgetown; Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.)

 

For every hygiene bag that is donated, our friends at TeamKY Masks will donate 1 CDC approved face mask to be given to someone in-need.  (For questions, please email Jenn.Goble@uwbg.org.)

 

We have a goal to see 240 hygiene bags donated on or before September 24 to honor our kickoff and community, and we know that our amazing supporters and volunteers will step up to help make this a reality!
