Spring Cleaning Drive

April 1 - May 16

Spring into Action! Spring is a time for projects, plans, and new beginnings. Like all of us, the clients at HOW could use a fresh start this season too. And you can help with a donation to the Spring Cleaning Supply Drive!

This year, from April 1 through May 16 we are accepting household cleaning item donations. Donations of full-size, unused products will be distributed to the nearly 500 households HOW serves.


The following items are needed:

  • Dish soap

  • Floor cleaner

  • Stove cleaner

  • Multi-purpose cleaner

  • Bleach

  • Laundry detergent

  • Disinfectant wipes

  • Mops

  • Brooms

  • Buckets

  • Sponges

  • Empty spray bottles

The majority of our clients have suffered chronic homelessness. The housing HOW provides offers them stability and a chance to rebuild after facing trauma and challenges. Your cleaning supply donations will meet a basic need for the individuals and families we serve – keeping their homes clean!

Shop online at Amazon to have donations sent directly to HOW or gather your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors to make a group donation of spring cleaning items.
