Group Volunteering

Do you believe that everyone deserves a second chance?

 Are you or your organization looking for a one-time, hands-on service project that will make a huge difference for those who are reentering society after a prison sentence?

 Amicus is always looking for hygiene kit donations.

 Thousands of people every year visit Amicus’ offices in search of basic needs after leaving a correctional facility.  One way we can show that we care – that people in society wish them well and want them to succeed – is to help fulfill this basic need.  To do this, we need your help.

 What you can bring:

 New and unopened

  • Shampoo/Conditioner
  • Body Soap
  • Deodorant
  • Toothbrushes/Toothpaste
  • Hand lotion
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Razors
  • Wash Cloths
  • Socks
  • Hats
  • Gloves

It’s always helpful to package the items in some sort of bag with handles—anything from a plastic grocery bag to a tote/duffel bag—as many of our clients spend a good deal of time on the street.

Where you can turn them in:

At the new Amicus office in the Central neighborhood of South Minneapolis:

3041 4th Ave. S. on the second floor

Parking is available in a lot next to the building

 

Call us at 612-877-4250 if you could use some help getting your donated items to our offices – we’d be happy to work with you to find an alternative.
