Donate Beanie Caps and Blankets to Help Homeless Teens

Doorways LLC, a Phoenix Teen and Young Adult Counseling Center Seeks to Provide over 200 New Beanie Caps and Blankets to Tumbleweeds Center for Youth

On any given day there are over 1800 homeless youth living in the streets of Maricopa County and very few places for them to turn to for help.  One of those places is Tumbleweeds Center for Youth which provides emergency shelter, counseling, and educational and employment assistance to over 3,000 homeless young people per year.

Doorways LLC, a counseling clinic in Phoenix that specializes in working with teens and young adults, is inviting the community to join them in helping out homeless teens by dropping off donations of new beanie caps and lightweight blankets at their clinic located at 1825 E. Northern Ave. Suite 200, Phoenix, AZ 85020.

“Living on the streets is difficult enough, but living on the streets in the winter can be even more so.  By providing homeless youth with their own beanie cap and lightweight blanket that they can take with them we can fill an unmet physical need and in a small way help with their emotional and spiritual needs as well,” says Jan Hamilton, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and Founder of Doorways.

Donations of new “Beanies and Blankets” will be accepted through December 20th, 2011.  The donations will be delivered to Tumbleweeds prior to Christmas Day.
