BENEFITING: HUMBLE DESIGN INC
$10 WILL BUY 1 CLEANING BUCKET FOR A FAMILY IN NEED
Humble Design assists low income families who are making the transition from homeless and abuse shelter into secure housing. For most of our families cleaning supplies and other household products are often an unaffordable expense in their monthly budget. Did you know that most cleaning supplies and paper products cannot be purchased with MI Bridge Cards (food assistance) which many of our clients qualify for and rely on? Your assistance is greatly appreciated when it comes to helping Humble Design set up homes for our client families.
Here is a great opportunity for youth groups, scout troops, service clubs and other organizations wanting to help. Your group can help us by creating cleaning buckets so our families can have cleaning products and supplies to maintain their new home upon move-in!
Suggested items include (but are not limited to):
- Scouring or scrubbing pads
- Scrub brush
- Paper towels
- Reusable cleaning wipe towels (like Handi-Wipe brand)
- Household cleaner (concentrated that can be mixed with water)
- Window cleaner
- Dish soap
- Latex or rubber gloves
- Garbage bags (kitchen and/or full size)
- Toilet bowl cleaner
- Toilet bowl brush
- Furniture polish (or furniture wipes)
- Air freshener (aerosol or pump)
- Toilet paper
All items should be new, in original sealed containers and can be purchased at local discount or dollar stores. You may want to consider asking individuals from your group to purchase a quantity of a specific item (i.e. 12 bottles of dish soap, 24 sponges, etc) and then schedule a day to get together (refreshments optional!) to assemble all the buckets as a fun group activity!
Place all the items in a large household cleaning bucket and cover with a white kitchen trash bag marked “Humble Design Cleaning Bucket”. Feel free to add a “Welcome Home” note or encouraging message from your group! Our clients appreciate knowing you support their family in their journey and care about them!
Please deliver your completed cleaning buckets to Humble Design’s warehouse located at 1876 Thunderbird Lane, Troy, MI 48083.
To schedule delivery or for more information, please contact Lindsay Krempa at Lindsay@humbledesign.org or (517) 740-8900.
With Love, Cheryl
