Kitchen Shower

Our Family Promise Guests spend their day at the Family Promise Day Center. There they have access to a kitchen outfitted with a refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and sink. Often times they like to heat up their lunch or leftovers from the churches. It would be great if they had a few dishes to eat off of along with the necessary items to clean their dishes and the kitchen afterwards.

These items can be new or purchased at St Vincent DePaul as they need to be functional but not fancy. Our goal is to move from disposable items such as paper plates and plastic spoons to permanent items. This will also replicate how they should manage their kitchens once they are placed in a permanent housing situation.
