The Northern Kentucky Chamber Foundation will partner with regional family resource coordinators this season to help identify the needs of local homeless populations and to collect and distribute personal hygiene products for those groups.
More than a dozen organizations from around the region are joining in the effort, with groups like Anthem, Staffmark, General Cable, L’Oreal, TANK and others providing support.
The initiative will help the more than 1,000 families across Northern Kentucky school districts who have been identified as homeless and/or in need of basic essentials.
“We have been overwhelmed by the response from our community,” said Tiffany Osborne, Vice President of Workforce at the NKY Chamber Foundation. “What started as a small project has turned into a regional effort to provide these products to a growing number of homeless here in Northern Kentucky. It has been great to see businesses getting involved, organizing their own collections, and doing whatever they can to serve these families.”
