Since June 2010, SNGA has provided duffel bags packed with shampoo, soap, deoderant, toothpaste, combs, dental floss and other items to thousands of new check-ins at a local emergency shelter. “The volunteers were a great help for us this weekend,” said SNGA founder Brenda Rhodes. “We had checked our storage space and were literally out of packed duffel bags for people in need. It would have taken one or two of us multiple hours to pack such a large number of bags ourselves. But the volunteers worked quickly and efficiently to pack 85 bags, which will make a real difference for the people who receive them. The volunteers did a great job of checking and rechecking the bags to make sure each one had all of items on the inventory sheet. Thanks again to JCC for all the help!”
