Secret Santas Spread Cheer at PSKS

Published on January 12, 2017 by in Uncategorized

Each year an ever growing number of Secret Santa’s donate everything from boots and hand warmers to tents, sleeping bags, and backpacks to be given to PSKS participants on Christmas.

 

 

After a delicious meal prepared one of our talented board members, each participant is invited into the Secret Santa store to select some gifts they like…

Many thanks to our Secret Santa’s, board members, staff and volunteers who make this annual tradition possible!

#GivingTuesday

gt-logo-wdate1

For some, the holidays are filled with warmth, joy and celebration. But when you are homeless and you don’t have a family to celebrate with or a home to go to, they can be depressing.

 

That’s where you come in.

 

Bring warmth and comfort into a young person’s life this holiday season with a donation to PSKS. Your support can provide a bed, a shower and clean clothes for someone.

 

Did you know PSKS also accepts donations of items like socks, shampoo, toothpaste and t-shirts? Check out our Amazon wish list and pick a few items that participants can use to stay clean and warm this winter.

 

Special thanks to Harborstone Credit Union for kicking off the giving season with the gift baskets they dropped off on November 21st!

 

And THANK YOU ALL for helping build this community of support!

Thank You Brooks!

 

Local running shoe company, Brooks, is committed to making the best running gear to build a healthier, “Run Happier” world. Beyond making shoes and promoting a healthy, active lifestyle, they regularly donate gear so people who really need their products can put them to great use.

 

On a daily basis PSKS participants traverse the city to access shelter, meals and support, they walk A LOT. It’s easy to wear out a pair of shoes but it’s not always easy to get a new pair. Especially one that fits right AND offers comfort and style.

 

Last week Brooks delivered over 500 shoes and t-shirts to PSKS for participants.

 

That’s more than enough for each participant to get some new gear during this holiday season. Whether they are passing GED tests or applying for jobs, they are going places in 2017. What a generous gift!

THANK YOU BROOKS!
