In conjunction with Homeless Awareness Week (March 28-April 1), members of the John Cook School of Business service leadership program are collecting personal hygiene and cleaning products to be distributed during their Sixth Annual Service Day Friday, April 1.
The drive kicks off Monday, Feb. 28, and runs through Thursday, March 31. Donations can be dropped off in room 124 of Cook Hall or at the Campus Ministry office. Needed items include:
- Body soap
- Hypoallergenic lotions
- Oven cleaner
- Laundry detergent
- Comet cleanser
The purpose of the service day is to build community and to fulfill the Jesuit mission of service to others. Each year business school students, faculty and staff donate time to provide various services to the St. Louis community.

This year the volunteers will head to Hope House, a transitional housing complex for homeless families in St. Louis, where they will clean out storage rooms and closets, paint lounge areas and the laundry room and do some gardening projects in the area around the facility.
They also will donate and install computers in the pre-school facility and teen center.
In addition, all products donated during the hygiene and cleaning products drive will be delivered to Hope House during the day of service.
