Homeless for the Holidays

November 1, 2023 - December 31, 2023

Our 2023 Homeless for the Holidays annual collection drive has BEGUN!

You can drop off new, full-sized hygiene products at any of the locations below in the SHIP branded collection bin starting November 6th.

See below for a list of hygiene items that we are seeking to distribute to local young people in need as well as a full list of our 2023 drop-off locations.

If you could, stop for a moment and picture the holiday season. For most of us, the holidays are a celebratory time to gather amongst family and friends to spend time together under a warm roof and catch each other up on the excitement of the previous year.

For thousands of young people in Frederick County though, this time of year is incredibly difficult. Either alone or with family members, youth in your community are faced with the significant shift in weather with none of the proper materials to successfully stay warm, as well as the general increased insecurity in their ability to meet housing and food needs.

As a community, it is up to us to make this stop.


Because of you, we can be one step closer to removing the barriers of homelessness for Frederick County youth.


Is your business interested in hosting a bin? Email our Development and Marketing Manager, Cecylia Morrison, for more information.



items are requested to be full-size to last each young person a few months.
