Homeless Summer Kits Versus Winter Kits
The needs at shelters change with summer and winter. While some items are needed all year round like socks, hygiene kits for the homeless, and blankets, what we need to put in a summer kit is very different than our winter kits. Summer can be just as dangerous as winter as dehydration can be as problematic as the cold when you don’t have consistent shelter. We highly recommend getting reusable water bottles in the summer on top of your normal supplies. In the winter however, we suggest thermals, toques, gloves, and other winter warmth items. The need is so great both times of year. If you need help selecting the right products for your welcome kits, feel free to reach out to one of our experts. Remember that we offer free product through our Full Circle Donation Program with every order.
