Leading up to and during the Saved by Science and Humanism: Dare to Care Conference Greater Richmond Humanists and WASH will be conducting a donation drive to benefit Side by Side. This organization supports LGBTQ+ youth by creating community and offering services that are vital to them. You can either bring items to donate at the event or donate money in person or online at our Side by Side fundraiser campaign.
Some of the youth Side by Side serves are experiencing homelessness while others are looking for things to help them better define who they are.
If you are attending the conference there is a list below of items that we will be collecting for the Youth Needs Closet:
|Housing Instability and Homelessness||Winter Preparation||Be Yourself||Be Healthy|
|Underwear (boxer briefs and cotton panties in all sizes)
Deodorant (all kinds and sizes)
Toothbrush and tooth paste
Shampoo and conditioner (both regular and travel sizes accepted)
Soap, loofas, and washcloths
Lotion and chapstick
|Warm jackets and coats (all sizes)
