About 140 bags are needed each month.
Sponsoring a month of Welcome Bags is a great community service project for your church, school or business! Please email Volunteer@thenextdoor.org to discuss the month of the year you would like to sponsor with this donation.
A completed welcome bag for our treatment clients includes the following items (with no additions, please). All the items are packed in the reusable grocery tote.
- Reusable grocery tote
- 1 spiral notebook and 1 pen
- 1 reusable water bottle
- 1 Chapstick or lip balm
- An encouraging note
- A Life Recovery Bible. The personal size edition is about $16 and can be purchased from Lifeway or Amazon.com
While every residential client receives a welcome bag, many clients arrive without basic hygiene items. If you are interested in donating those in addition to the Welcome Bags, please feel free to donate any of the individual items listed on our wish list. Those items are given out to our residential clients on an as-needed basis. We do accept sealed travel size bottles as well as full size bottles.
