Nash Cares CareKit Program
To meet the everchanging needs of our community, the Bert Nash Center has implemented a program called our Nash Cares CareKit Program. This program will not only allow for us to meet the needs of our clients emotionally, but physically and financially to serve the ‘whole person.’ When someone is working to better their mental health, it can be a challenge to care for their physical needs. The Nash Cares CareKit Program is seeking group volunteers to collect supplies and assemble snack bags & hygiene kits for BNC clients to utilize.

What to Know
This volunteer opportunity can be done on your own, off-site, or on-site at the Bert Nash Center.
We ask that you and/or your group provide the supplies (clear baggies/brown sacks) and items for the kits. The number you make is up to your group, but we recommend a minimum of 20 and no more than 100.
If you are planning on making more than 50 snack bags or hygiene kits, please email email@example.com to check availability of space.
Plan to drop off at the Bert Nash Center at 200 Maine St., Suite A Lawrence KS 66044 between 8 am and 5 pm Monday thru Friday.
You can put 3-5 non-perishable items in each bag, but please do not include perishable items in them.
Due to food safety concerns and the well-being of our clients, we are unable to accept food items or baked goods that are prepared off-site (such as in your home kitchen). Please use pre-packaged goods from store in unopened containers and packages.
Some pre-packaged snack ideas include:
Pudding Cups (non-refrigerated)
Please provide clean, unopened, unused items.
**Please do not put razors or nail cutters in these kits**
Some hygiene kit supply ideas include:
Menstrual Hygiene products
