Why is there a Christmas tree in the Gathering Place???

Because it’s actually a Summer Love tree! Many of our downtown neighbors struggle to find personal care items,
so Martha Circle is giving you the opportunity to show them that they are loved.
During the entire month of June we will collect items such as:
toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, soap, combs, brushes,
barrettes, razors, body lotion, wipes, hand sanitizer, and especially
feminine care products like tampons and sanitary pads.

Remember that many of our CTV friends carry their belongings with them, so please purchase smaller sizes
or packages that can be broken into individual units. Items will be distributed
on the first Wednesday of July and any extra will be stored for later requests.
Thank you for
being a Sanctuary in the City.
