Farah and Farah collecting items for Jacksonville homeless

Farah & Farah is collecting personal hygiene and clothing items for people in Jacksonville who might otherwise go without this holiday season. The items will be given to residents at the City Rescue Mission’s annual Christmas party.

Items being requested for the drive include:

•Toiletries such as soap, shampoo and deodorant

•Sheets

•Towels

•Socks – men’s and women’s

•Underwear – men’s and women’s, sizes large and extra large

•Shoeboxes, which items will be placed in and wrapped

The City Rescue Mission will distribute these gifts as a part of its annual “Shoeboxes of Love” Christmas program. The nonprofit provides food, clothing, shelter, emergency services and residential recovery programs to homeless men, women and women with children.

Firm employees are purchasing items or donating money to the project. The general public is invited to participate as well by dropping off items to the donation bin in the lobby of the downtown Jacksonville office located at 10 West Adams Street. The deadline for dropping off items is Dec. 19.

“Residents at the City Rescue Mission are working to transition from homelessness, so we hope these necessities will make them feel more comfortable,” said founding partner and attorney Eddie Farah. “Farah and Farah is committed to supporting great organizations like the City Rescue Mission.”
