Consider Hosting a Donation Drive:
You, your family, your co-workers, your church... any individual or group can organize and host a Donation Drive for new and unused personal care items used at the shelter daily. 

This can be a great alternative to receiving gifts on your birthday! 
Use Facebook and other social media to help spread the word. Be sure to let HALO know if you are planning an event in support of our mission so that we can help promote it, too.
