TD Bank recently teamed up with the Lewiston-Auburn Rotary Club and Kids that Care to hold donation drives that provided Trinity Jubilee Center’s Day Shelter with more than 200 care packages for the needy.
The project was spearheaded by Callie Cook, a manager at TD Bank and member of the Lewiston-Auburn Rotary Club. The drive collected toiletries, laundry soaps, hand warmers, socks, winter boots, backpacks and more.
Kids that Care, a nonprofit started by a 9-year-old boy, organized a crew of children to pack the supplies into care packages. On Oct. 13, teams from TD Bank, the Rotary Club and Kids that Care prepared packages at East Auburn Baptist Church.
The supplies were offered to the many people who use Trinity Jubilee Center’s Day Shelter. The shelter provides a warm place for homeless people to seek shelter. Through the center’s Meals Program, Food Pantry, Resource Center and Refugee Integration Program clients can receive food, diapers, medical attention, help with job applications, and other assistance getting back on their feet.
