polo boots for men cheap Group gathering items to help homeless
ASHLAND A local homeless advocacy group is teaming up with staff from NeuroRestorative on Carter Avenue in Ashland to gather items that could be crucial to the survival of people who have no home during harsh winter weather.
“We here at the Ashland NeuroRestorative branch are partnering with local homeless advocacy group Humblebees to faciliate a winter clothing drive for the local homeless population. Your donations will be almost immediately distributed to individuals who are experiencing homelessness by people who have experienced the challenges of life on the streets first hand,” said Zack Kouns, one of the collection drive organizers.
The groups are asking for “general winter necessitites” such as backpacks, coats, scarves, toboggons, thermal socks, thermal underwear, gloves and boots as well as additional items that will be useful for those in need.
“We also ask that you consider donating the following items to help us assemble winter survival kits that ease the burden and ensure a degree of safety and comfort for the homeless population through the difficult winter months,” organizer Alan Fairchild said, listing deodorant, soap (bar form), toothbrush, razor, Q tips, lip balm, comb, hair ties, wash cloth,
skin lotion, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush cover, toothpaste, cough drops, feminine hygiene products, emergency blanket, lighter/matches, Ibuprofen/Tylenol, jar of peanut butter, protein bars/bag of peanuts, and toilet paper among the things that can be utilized for the collection and distribution. “One or all of these items would be welcome and appreciated.”
Fairchild said all donations will be accounted for.
“We’ll be accepting donations at our Ashland Office from Dec. each evening for people whose work hours excludes their ability to participate in the daytime donation drop,” he said. “Everyone who donates will receive a raffle ticket, and there will be a drawing at the end of the week and 3 lucky winners will win some terrific prizes handcrafted by the participants at Neuro Restorative.”
President Donald J. Trump signed into law tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from several countries. The tariff for steel is 25 percent and 10 percent for aluminum. Trump believes the move will help domestic steel and aluminum producers.
Critics of the move, including Republican leaders like Paul Ryan, fear a trade war could be looming. The European Union has already threatened new tariffs on American exports if Trump’s proposal becomes reality. Trump says trade wars are “good, and easy to win.”
