Drive by Donations for The Montgomery County Safehouse, which serves women and children forced from their homes by domestic violence, by providing them emergency shelter and other services.

The Safehouse has an urgent need for personal hygiene items for the women and children, some of their greatest needs are toothpaste and toothbrushes, combs and soap, shampoo, deodorant; and anything for babies, especially diapers and baby wipes. Wash cloths and towels would be very welcome. Sheets and Blankets are always put to use. They can use any kind of cleaning supplies from floor cleaner to dish washing soap.

Cheryl Lyle, the services coordinator for the Safehouse would like to thank the community at large for the support they give year after year. “Public support helps the shelter concentrate on it’s mission of protecting the victims of domestic violence.”
