The Lafayette Urban Ministry Emergency Shelter houses as many as 44 homeless men and women every night of the year. They provide safe, warm shelter in addition to hot showers and a hot meal each night. Guests check in at 9 p.m. and check out the next morning after breakfast.
We can help in many ways to provide this work of mercy for our brothers and sisters in need! One way is to help provide the basic toiletry needs that they have. So we are having a Toiletry Drive March 2nd-9th. If you would like join our efforts, you may send in the following items:
- Travel-size Shampoo (no full size)
- Travel-size Soap (no full size)
- Travel-size Toothpaste
- Tooth brushes
- Deodorant (travel-size preferred)
- Toilet Paper
Additional items needed can be found on the LUM Shelter Wish List.
We know that we are doing a lot right now, so please choose how you would like to participate and don’t feel that you have to do everything! Do what you can, not what you can’t!
