The Salvation Army's Shelter Needs Personal Items
“Our Hospitality House residents are facing especially hard times, so we give them not just shelter and food, but also other necessities that most people take for granted,” said Corps Officer Nancy Ball. “Since the residents have an ongoing need for these items, it is a great help to us when we receive them as donations instead of having to purchase them.”
To make a donation, call the San Bernardino Corps Headquarters at (909) 888-1336 or drop off the donations at the Headquarters building, 746 W. Fifth Street, San Bernardino.
The needed personal items are:
- Deodorant (men’s and women’s)
- Wash cloths
- Socks (men’s women’s and children’s)
- Diapers (all sizes)
- Baby wipes
- Feminine hygiene products
- Combs and brushes
- Dental floss
- Body/hand soap
- Hand lotion
