For people experiencing homelessness, maintaining personal hygiene is a small way to maintain dignity, self-respect and the confidence needed to seek independence. LMM’s shelter residents and numerous others experiencing homelessness throughout Northeast Ohio will receive a very special gift this year, by way of the women at the Northeast Ohio Reintegration Center (NERC).
The women at NERC worked with LMM's Workforce Development team to put together a donation drive to gather essential hygiene items for individuals experiencing homelessness in the area, including those staying at LMM's Men's Shelter at 2100 Lakeside. Despite the challenges the women at NERC face on a daily basis, their commitment to supporting people in need extends beyond their circumstances. This is the highest level of philanthropy- the will to show love for others.
