NoVES will be collecting items to donate to New Hope Housing. Since 1978, New Hope Housing has been providing a comprehensive, innovative array of services to homeless families and single adults. New Hope Housing is the oldest and largest provider of shelter beds in northern Virginia. They work to locate permanent housing options to end the cycle of homelessness.
Our collection request is for cleaning supplies that will make kits to give each family as they move into permanent housing.
The NoVES Green Team has asked that we focus on eco-friendly products from the following brands:
- Method brand is made from natural products and uses recycled packaging.
- Seventh Generation is made from natural products and uses recycled packaging.
- Common Good is made from natural products and uses refillable packaging.
- Ecos brand is made from natural products and its facilities are powered by 100% renewable energy.
- J.R. Watkins brand is made from natural products and is biodegradable.
- Mrs Meyer’s is made from natural products and uses 25% post-consumer plastic for packaging.
Or you may donate more permanent items such as a broom, dustpan, sponges, or towels. Iris Woodard will collect these items and deliver to New Hope in early Feb.
