Exciting things have been happening with the Mobile Hygiene Unit. New services have been added to help our neighbors in need. We have been offering services to mend clothes, groom hair, and listen to our client’s stories. Donations of travel kits, travel mugs, underwear, blankets, socks, and food have been well received. We now are providing shoe vouchers that clients can take to the Fremont Family Resource Center to get a pair of shoes. Both the Abode Services Hope Van and the Tri-City Health Center Mobile Medical Unit are talking with us about providing medical services as well. If you have a service you’d like to provide, please contact Jim Thomas or visit https://nilesdiscoverychurch/MHU for more information.
Many of the clients that visit the Hygiene unit lack the usual items needed for cleaning and grooming. If you would like to donate items to the endeavor, here are a few things that are always helpful: baggies with bandages and other first aid items, tooth brushes and dental floss, combs/brushes, underwear and socks, nail clippers, disposable razors, and travel size toiletry items.
The City of Fremont’s Clean Start Mobile Hygiene Unit provides shower and laundry service at Niles Discovery Church on Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 1:00 pm till 4:00 pm. To volunteer to help with the Mobile Hygiene Unit, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
