SICKLERVILLE, NJ (February 26, 2021)(CNBNews)--Three students from Camden County Technical School, namely, Yamileth Galvez, Victorious Johnson, and Hannah Weiser, took the initiative to put together a collection for local women's safe homes and youth shelters. The students are members of the CCTS SkillsUSA chapter and used the club to host the collection.
The shelters have been hit hard with COVID and the girls, with the help of their fellow members and advisors within SkillsUSA, began collecting unscented soap, shampoo and conditioner (especially for ethnic hair), toothpaste, toothbrushes, mouthwash, deodorant, tampons, pads, baby wipes, lotions, and chapstick.
Even though the school is not fully in person they managed to still put it together where each student, even fully remote ones, have the chance to donate. They plan to reach out to local businesses to begin collecting there as well to get the community to help participate.
The items will go to a Center For Family Services, SERV Safe Homes and youth shelters for homeless children ages 9-18. The homes hold around 66 women along with their children and the youth shelters hosts around 300 children.
