Thank you, again, to an incredible community partner, the 3M Pride Alliance out of Cottage Grove. This division of the 3M Pride Alliance contacted Avenues with the inspiration to support LGBTQ youth in the ConneQT host-home program.
Over a month they collected items to build apartment kits for youth leaving the program to their own housing. Typically youth leaving Avenues do not have much to set-up their new house, so this gift of bedding, dishware, cutlery, bedding, towels, and cleaning supplies is very welcomed support.
The 3M Pride group met up at Bad Weather Brewery to assemble the kits and learn more about youth homelessness and Avenues. Thank you to everyone that participated and thank you so much to Viv and Jonathan for your thoughtful leadership.
