For guests at Pine Street, simple, daily items are often hard to come by – especially when they move into a permanent home for the first time.
You and your friends or colleagues can assemble Welcome Home Baskets to help new tenants get settled – some for the first time in many years.
If you have questions about collecting new items for formerly homeless individuals moving in to Pine Street housing, contact our team. We also have our welcome home basket wishlist in printable format as a flyer.
To create a Welcome Home basket, compile the items below in a laundry basket and drop it off at Pine Street Inn:
