The Highland Lakes Crisis Network‘s new commissary space is running low, and you can help restock the hygiene and household products that are given free to people in need. 

“We really need full-size products,” said Ben Henderson, HLCN office coordinator. “The commissary was initially fully stocked with donations from the Marble Falls Rotary, but we are starting to run low.” 

Commissary supplies are also given to families living in the network’s transitional housing at the Southwest Village duplexes on Village Circle in Marble Falls.

“We would like to ask for your help in stocking our shelves,” reads a newsletter emailed to HLCN supporters. “You can rally your church, business, or otherwise be creative in the way you ask for people to help.”

Full-size items requested include: 

  • laundry soap
  • bleach

  • dryer sheets
  • dish soap
  • kitchen trash bags
  • kitchen sponges
