Girl Up club is now collecting items for the Sojourner Truth House. Sojourner Truth House is a non profit organization that is located in Gary, Indiana. The organization serves women who are either homeless or who are at risk of becoming homeless. Teachers who requested for a donation box to collect items will have them in their rooms.

The day care center at Sojourner Truth helps to obtain benefits such as referrals to community and support agencies, basic skills and employment training, healthcare screenings, counseling, and assistance with finding a house.

Girl Up Club President Madi Correy said, “Highland has never done this before. We are doing this to fulfill our monthly challenge, ‘strong girls make strong women.’ The donations started on April 12th and people will have the chance to donate until May 16th.”

This girl up drive is collecting hygienic products like toothbrushes, body lotion, body wash, and deodorant. They are also collecting clothing that is gently used, undergarments, and formal wear for dances. You can also donate houseware items like microwaves, pillows, and toasters. Any donation from small or large can help.
