Laura Walter and Unico Properties for their brilliant idea to donate toilet paper to us here at the Helpline. Because of their quick thinking and outreach, we were able to receive this necessary item for our hygiene bank, as well as distribute the remaining goods to both the Sacred Heart Shelter and Mary’s Place. Together we were able to spread the goods and make an even bigger impact!
