In the United States, there are an estimated two million homeless kids. As an Aviva representative, we feel privileged to make a difference in the lives of these kids by working alongside Aviva’s Street to School program. And, we’d like your help to provide for these kids’ most basic, personal care needs! Between now and April 30th, we are hosting a personal products care drive to benefit Covenant House, a national, 24-hour crisis center serving homeless youth.
Each year, Covenant House serves approximately 70,000 at-risk and homeless kids. Most arrive with nothing more than the clothes on their backs and—like most of us—they look forward to having food, shelter, clean clothes and the chance to shower. Donations as simple as combs and toothbrushes help make this possible, and show that someone cares.
Want to help? The next time you’re at the store, please pick up an extra item or two and drop them by the office. Most-needed items include toothbrushes and toothpaste, combs and brushes, shaving cream, hotel-size soaps, small bottles of shampoo, and deodorant. Look for the yellow sign in our Madison and Mt. Horeb offices to drop off your donation!
