Throughout this past summer, Earthglow shoppers donated many hygiene items that were then forwarded to The Education and Employment Ministry (TEEM). The following letter was received from TEEM:
Dear Church of the Servant Friends – On behalf of the board of directors, staff, and participants of The Education and Employment Ministry (TEEM), thank you for participating in this year’s “Spring Cleaning” Summer Hygiene Drive. Because of your partnership, TEEM collected over 9,000 hygiene items for our participants! This level of community support demonstrates the care and concern that is life changing for the justice involved individuals.
One of the many barriers TEEM participants face is a lack of basic hygiene items to address basic needs. Your decision to participate in this year’s drive alleviates this challenge by providing necessary hygiene products directly to participants. Thank you for your continued support of our organization and mission, and most of all, thank you for believing in our participants. TEEM serves approximately 1,500 individuals each year and your support helps TEEM to continue breaking cycles of incarceration and poverty by empowering individuals to achieve personal and career goals. Thank you again for making this year’s drive successful! We look forward to partnering with you again in the future.
Kris Steele, Executive Director
