ESCO Youth Leaders will be gathering at Salt Creek Sports Center on Monday, January 20, 2020 from 2:00-3:30PM for our annual MLK Day of Service. We will be making fleece scarves and gathering personal care products, which we will donate to Journeys | The Road Home.

Journeys is a local non-profit agency that provides shelter, social services and housing to the homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless in 37 towns in north/northwest suburban Cook County.

What you need for the scarf project:

  • 1-2 Yards of Fleece – Patterned or Plain colors that can be used by ALL ages and genders.
  • SHARP SCISSORS! – Fleece is very difficult to cut if you don’t have sharp scissors. If you have extras, please label them and bring to share.
  • A Sharpie marker to add a personal note to your scarves.

We are collecting the following items:

  • Full sized shampoo, conditioner, and body wash for housed clients
  • Deodorant
  • Q-tips
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Travel sized packets of tissue
  • Reflective tape
