During your next shower, will YOU think about the women and men who rely on the showers at the Norristown Hospitality Center?
Did you know that the Norristown Hospitality Center provided 2,631 Showers in the last program year? Each month, the Norristown Hospitality Center provides, on average, 219 showers to our guests.
Today, I am writing to you to ask for your support of our SHOWER PROGRAM for those experiencing poverty and homelessness. As you know, there are many people in our community who do not have access to a safe and clean place to shower. This can have a devastating impact on their physical and mental health.
When people cannot shower regularly, they are more likely to suffer health issues and experience medical problems. In addition, not being able to shower can lead to feelings of isolation and shame.
Our shower program provides a safe and clean place for people to shower. We also provide our guests with laundered towels, new underwear, soap, and other toiletries. In addition, we offer them a chance to connect with case managers who can help them find housing, employment, and other resources.
Through our shower program we have seen the difference that a simple shower can make in someone’s life. The shower program is one way that the Hospitality Center provides Care, Comfort, and Compassion.
Mike is one of our guests who spends each night sleeping on the street. He is among the first people to enter the Center each morning to get breakfast and put his name on the shower list. He starts each weekday getting a shower at the Center before heading off to work in Philadelphia. Your donation allows Mike to have the dignity of cleanliness. He can be fresh and clean each morning before he takes the train to work.
We know that there are many people, like Mike, in our community who need help. That’s why we are asking for your support.
The next time you are taking a shower, we ask that you think about the Norristown Hospitality Center. More importantly, we ask that you think about our guests. On these hot, steamy days, our guests rely on the Center to provide them with the ability to wash the dirt and sweat from their bodies. We all know how refreshing a shower can be! Will you support the shower program at the Hospitality Center?
- How many showers do the people in your household take each month?
- Would you be willing to donate $0.50 for each shower someone in your home takes during the next 30 days?
Your support of the 30 Day Shower Challenge helps alleviate our guests’ feelings of isolation and shame.
