County Treasurer Teri Jacobson is hosting a community-wide shower by accepting donations of items to benefit clients of Women and Children’s Horizons, an organization dedicated to advocating for victims of domestic and sexual violence.
Items can be dropped off at the Treasurer’s Office in downtown Kenosha at the County Administration Building, 1010 56th St., or at the Elected Official’s Office at the Kenosha County Center, 19600 75th St., Bristol.
Women and Children’s Horizons is registered at Target for items to assist clients and their children. Use the “Advanced Search” option at the store or on its website, and search “Women and Children’s Horizons” for the full list of items.
Among the items requested are: Crockpots, coffee makers, dishes, pots and pans, utensils, silverware, bed pillows, 3-5 drawer storage bins, comforters, sheets, blankets, diapers (especially larger sizes) and baby wipes. Also, underwear, bras and socks (all sizes for women and children), personal care items (deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, body wash), paper towels and household and clothing cleaning products. To make a monetary donation, checks may be written to Women and Children’s Horizons.
In addition, the children’s program coordinator is seeking donations of craft supplies. Particularly needed are balloons, glitter glue or clear glue, craft sand, construction/craft paper, mason jars and stickers. The items are used for “calm down” jars and stress balls, which help the children deal with anger issue, according to Women & Children’s Horizons staff.
