Part 2: Buy and Donate Supplies: Safe House is an emergency shelter for homeless youth ages 16-21 in St. Paul. They have the following urgent needs for this holiday season: soda/juice/fizzy water, journals and notebooks, t-shirt undershirts and underwear of all sizes. Purchase one of these items and coordinate with me (Heather) so I can pick up the supplies any time before 12/24. I will then deliver them to the shelter.
