Center for the Homeless asking for help with critical needs


The South Bend Center for the Homeless is asking for help as the colder weather approaches.  The Center is critically low on items such as pillows, blankets, and towels which they use during their weather amnesty program.  They are also completely out of deodorant and women's underwear.

The Chief Development Officer for the Center for the Homeless, Taya Groover, says they house over 200 guests on a regular basis and can add up to an additional 30 when the weather gets bad.  They want to help these people to have the basic needs to get by on a given day.  "It is just those everyday things that you think of," Groover said, "you get up everyday and get ready for work or for your day.  You put on your deodorant, you brush your teeth, you use soap, you use shampoo, you put on clean underwear.  We need all those things as well."

Donations can be make at the Center, 813 South Michigan St in South Bend.  A list of critical needs can be found at
