Seven Hills Homeless Center in ‘desperate’ need of food items, other supplies

Seven Hills needs list

An organization that helps the local homeless population issued a call for help on Monday.

Cynthia Seideman, day center director of Seven Hills Homeless Center, posted a status update on Facebook explaining that the group’s supply of food items and other supplies is very low.

From Facebook (Note: This post has since been deleted):

Good Morning. We need some help in a desperate way. Our food pantry is really low. So low that we are not able to make complete food bags for the clients that are homeless and families with children that are living in poverty. If you can help, please look at our needs list as well as spread the word.

Below is a list of items that the shelter currently needs. Items may be dropped off items at the Seven Hills Day Center at 1555 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday.
