For so many of us, Christmas season is the time to slow down, spend time with family and celebrate. But homeless and needy people do not have these luxuries. For them, winter can be the harshest time of the year with no proper housing and clothing.
Donating things that are useful during winter season can help people and save lives.
This winter when you think about donating things to the needy for Christmas giving and Christmas donation take their usefulness and necessity into account.
Here is a list of the 5 most useful things to donate this winter.
1. Winter Clothing
Poor people with no proper housing often have to spend a lot of time outdoors. Protective winter clothing can make a big difference to them. Jackets, sweaters, scarves, gloves, snow pants, etc., are some of the major clothing items that you should consider donating this winter.
Promise Hill Project is continuously striving to improve lives by donating food, water, clothing, personal care products and shelter to children and adults in need. Check out our Basic Needs Program and donate generously to offer your help.
2. Winter Boots, Shoes and Socks
It is very important to protect the feet from frost and snow bite. Good quality boots, shoes and thick socks can help in the same. If you have boots that no longer fit in, it is time to give them away to people in need.
3. Blankets and Pillows
In the winter chill, the comfort of pillows and warm blankets can make all the difference for many needy people. Blankets, quilts, comforters, and pillows are very useful things to donate any winter.
4. Food Supplies
Food donations are good throughout the year. But during festive season, it is even more important to take care that people do not go hungry to sleep. Healthy staples like canned meats, tuna, rice, beans, oatmeal, peanut butter, biscuits, etc., are always good food items to donate.
5. Hygiene Products
Hygiene products like toothpaste and toothbrushes, deodorant, soaps, and shampoos are useful throughout the year. During winter as the mercury dips further, products like lotions and lip balms are particularly useful. The winter can damage people’s exposed skin and these products can make things slightly better for them.
At Promise Hill Project, we strive to make the lives of needy people around us better all year round. Donate personal care items to those who do not have access to the essential items for healthy living.
