The Human Services Club will be hosting a cosmetics and toiletries drive, in honor of Women’s History Month. The Club is asking for donations of unopened and unused items, such as shampoo, body wash, toothpaste, toothbrushes and makeup.
The donations will go to the residents of the Alpha Rehabilitation Home, which helps women who are struggling with drug and alcohol addictions.
Alpha Home also helps students of the Alamo Colleges with student practicums in substance abuse counseling. Students gain experience in their field of study by performing volunteer work at the home.
“Since they are mothers, daughters and sisters of the community, it would be nice for us to give and help them out,” Chris Lopez, Human Services Club member, said.
Donation stations will be set up in Loftin Student Center and Moody Learning Center. Donations will be accepted through March 31.
“All of these women have children and they come from bad economical backgrounds, so it’s good to help them,” Lopez said.
Money donations are also welcome. If you plan to donate money or need more information, call Lopez at 210-849-9038.
