I want to share about a cause that is very close to my heart. The Bliss Brand is beyond just real estate it's a lifestyle that extends into the community! Semiannually, I partner with Vera Hardy to provide Bliss Boxes to local families in need. What started as a volunteer opportunity at the Westside Rotarian Club and has quickly grown into a passion project. Twice a year, in Summer and December, we collect toiletries including deodorant, oral hygiene products, soap, etc. in shoe boxes for both young women and men to help their families who may have fallen on hard times. Many of the families we serve are underemployed and often homeless so small items we may take for granted are items these families constantly go without. These boxes provide students with the more than toiletries they provide self-confidence allowing them to continue to focus and thrive in school. It's not erasing all their problems but if we can take even a little bit of worry from them why not do what we can!
If you're wondering how you can get involved, it's easy! Save any of your shoe boxes that you may be tossing out and fill it with toiletries! Below is a list of items we will be collecting when the time comes.
Deodorant, Toothpaste, combs/brushes, mouthwash, soap, sanitary napkins.
Deodorant, Toothpaste, brushes, mouthwash, soap, shaving kits, and socks or belts.
When you are doing your shopping, please keep us in mind and pick up a few extras to put to the side if you are moved in your heart to do so! I appreciate whatever you can give!
