T.P. the Prez to Benefit Omaha Home for Boys’ Youth Mart
T.P. the Prez (OmahaHomeForBoys.org/TPthePrez), taking place December 4-8, is a donation drive aimed at stocking the shelves at Youth Mart. The goal of this annual event is to fill the office of Omaha Home for Boys’ President and CEO, Jeff Moran, with critically needed items for young men and women who are transitioning to independent living. Items being collected for Youth Mart during T. P. the Prez include feminine hygiene products, deodorant, toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent and cleaning products. Diapers and wipes are also greatly needed as well as socks and underwear for men, women and children.
Youth Mart is a donation center that collects household essentials, hygiene items, clothing and furniture and redistributes these much needed items to at-risk youth, many of whom are Omaha Home for Boys’ clients. The young men and women who pass through Youth Mart’s doors are allowed to shop free of charge for critically needed items as they work towards establishing themselves in their own apartments. The shelves at Youth Mart would be bare and the 300 young adults who utilize Youth Mart every year would be turned away without the generous donations received from the community.
Individuals and businesses can join the giving during T.P. the Prez by dropping off needed items December 4-8 at Omaha Home for Boys, 4343 N. 52nd Street. Cash gifts for Youth Mart are also greatly appreciated at OmahaHomeForBoys.org/TPthePrez.
