In order for people to thrive, our basic needs must first be met. Through the Personal Care Pantry, BSM provides our guests with necessities such as socks, underwear, and personal hygiene products like toothpaste, toothbrushes, and deodorant all in a discreet and respectful way. Last year, BSM distributed more than 14,000 personal care bags and over 55,000 personal care items.
To keep our Personal Care Pantry stocked we launched our Pack the Pantry campaign this spring. Through the support and generosity of 9 fundraisers and 38 donors, Pack the Pantry raised $3,365, which will help us continue to fill our shelves and provide hope to our guests.
Thank you to everyone who participated in our Pack the Pantry campaign by sharing information about the campaign with your networks, donating, and participating as a fundraiser. Your support of Pack the Pantry helps Broad Street Ministry continue to provide a tangible solution to people experiencing poverty in our city.
If you’re interested in hosting your own peer-to-peer campaign to sponsor a meal or provide funding for essential services that we provide to our guests, please feel free to contact Kris White at Kris@broadstreetministry.org or 215-735-4847 X105.
