Donation options:
  • Gently used and washed toys, for girls and boys of all ages, to be donated to Murtis H. Taylor Multi Service Center.
  • Toilitries for the Norma Herr Women's Center (toothbrush/toothpaste, bar soap, deodorant, laundry detergent pods, adult Depends).
Murtis H. Taylor is a community-based organization that provides Behavioral Health, Addiction, Youth, Family and Senior services. They serve more than 11,000 children and adults annually at twelve locations. The organization moves individuals and communities toward optimal health by diminishing the effects of illness, discrimination, bias, and poverty through innovation, partnership and research.

Norma Herr provides access to immediate, low-barrier shelter and services. The organization strives to empower women in the NHWC to receive services to which they are entitled and which they often require in order to overcome their experiences of homelessness, trauma, physical abuse and substance abuse, and re-establish self-sufficiency and independence in our community. Its main focus is to encourage women in the shelter to make informed decisions about themselves and to increase the resources available to women in the shelter.
All donations can be dropped off at Laurel's front desk, brought to the MLK Day of Service event or placed in the bin by the Winged Victory statue on the second floor.
