Help Dad Guild deliver kids hygiene products and art kits directly to families in Winooski. The plan is to have hygiene/art kits for at least 50 kids to distribute at the next Pop-Up on March 13th. Hygiene products are in high demand, and often only the adult versions of products are available, so we're focusing on kids hygiene products. We also want to distribute art kits that will give parents and kids a fun outlet for connection, creativity and stress relief.
How Can You Help?
You can help either by donating money, which Dad Guild will use to purchase kids hygiene products and art supplies, or by purchasing/donating items to the drive (see a list of drop-off sites below). Next time you go shopping, just grab an item or two from the list below, every bit helps! We are also looking for businesses willing to donate items, so if you feel comfortable asking your dentist or employer if they are interested that’s awesome!
Here is a list of items that we are looking for:
Kids Hygiene Products
* Liquid Hand Soap
* Body Soap
* Bubble Bath
* Hand Sanitizer
Art Kit Supplies
Note: We are only looking for new/unused products, except coloring books as noted below.
* Adult or child colorings books (can be used, we intend to salvage unused pages a ‘coloring pages’)
* Colored Pencils Drawing Paper
Where Do I Donate My Items
You can drop off your kids hygiene products and art supplies at Vivid Coffee at 150 Cherry St, Burlington, VT 05401
We are working on establishing a drop-off location in Winooski, we'll post here and on Facebook when we do.
Many places that normally serve folks are currently closed due to the pandemic and/ or have modified hours. Transportation, work schedules, childcare, language barriers, lack of social media and/or internet, community all contribute to folks not being able to access many programs. PUMA aims to break down these barriers by bringing essentials straight to the people.
