Starter kit program
When a woman moves out of a Cornerstone Residence and into her own apartment, she has almost nothing. You can transform her house into a home by contributing to a Starter Kit of basic household items she’ll need.
Each kit contains the basics that a woman needs when setting up a new home. These kits transform four walls and a roof into a cozy and peaceful home. It’s especially important that all items in a Starter Kit be unused – for women who have endured so much, new houseware means a great deal.
A Starter Kit usually includes:
- Kitchen supplies: Pots and pans, frying pans, dish soap, and pot scrubbers
- Bedding: Duvets and sheets
- Cleaning supplies: Mop, broom, dust pan, and toilet brush
- Hygiene products: Toilet paper and hand soap
- First aid: Band aid and antibiotic cream
