La Casa Latino Cultural Center is collecting needed items for Shalom Community Center in Bloomington.

Shalom Community Center is a safe, daytime resource center for people experiencing homelessness and poverty in South Central Indiana. Many of its guests are temporary residents at area emergency shelters who use Shalom as a point of contact for potential employers, personal support networks, and human services representatives from more than 20 local nonprofit agencies. In addition to providing access to phones, mail, transportation vouchers, and a number of in-house programs, the center is the only agency in the county to provide breakfast and lunch daily, serving more than 7,000 hot, nutritious meals each month.

La Casa (715 E. 7th St.) is accepting donations for Shalom Community Center from 9am to 9pm on Mon.-Thu., Mar. 24-27, and from 9am-5pm on Fri., Mar. 28, 2014.  Please consider donating hygiene products, gently used clothing, baby supplies and clothes, backpacks and footwear, non-perishable food, and/or undergarments.
