Project Description

Take Care of You!


Saturday, August 31st, 3-8 PM

Take Care of You: Summer to Fall Care Package Event is for queer and trans people 14-24 years old experiencing homelessness to be held, cared for and supported by community member through donations of unused toiletries and back to school necessities.
Too often, Queer and Trans youth experiencing homelessness have limited access to basic hygiene needs, educational supplies and sexual health/care items due to issues with housing. The truth has become that in addition to personal hygiene items, our sexual pleasure and health is not always seen as a means of self-care.
This Take Care of You package event is meant to create a circular experience of self-care becoming community care. Together, we can experience an abundance of joy and healing that may not have seemed possible or accessible otherwise. We want to create the full package and experience of equity. We all deserve to feel cared for and supported and sometimes that comes through support of our personal hygiene, self-pleasure to achieve self-care.

  • Toothbrushes
  • Toothpaste
  • Dental Floss
  • Shampoo (POC friendly)
