$1,200 towards $4,500

Bank of America is visiting the Franciscan Center this #GivingTuesday for a Day of Service. Members of the Greater Maryland Market Team will be at the Center from 2:30 – 5:30 p.m. on November 28th, to assemble bags of critically-needed personal hygiene products for the men, women and children who come to our doors each day seeking help – and hope. Bank of America has graciously offered to purchase and assemble 1,000 bags of toiletry items, to be distributed to our guests throughout the holiday season. What a beautiful blessing!

The Franciscan Center is asking our friends in the community to help us raise $4,500, to match Bank of America's generous donation and purchase an additional 1,000 toiletry kits. These kits will be distributed to our guests throughout the months of January and February.

Personal Hygiene is an important part of dignity, but items like soap, shampoo, toothpaste and deodorant are expensive and often out of reach for individuals in our community who are struggling just to find enough to eat.

Please consider helping us to meet our goal by supporting this important project with a donation. Your support in any amount will make an important difference!
