Martha's home kicks off summer drive

Martha's Home kicked off their summer drive at 5 o'clock at Hoffbrau Steaks and were there until 7 p.m. Donations such as shampoo and conditioner, hairspray, toothbrushes and deodorant are needed. Each person who donates three full-sized items will receive a free appetizer and a chance to win a dinner for two for free.

If you were unable to come by Thursday, the drive goes through August at Hoffbrau.

Mary Kay Kuhrts, Development Director for Martha's Home, tells me these donations make a big difference in the lives of women.

"It's just important for your self esteem to feel beautiful, you know. And these items will help them feel beautiful, as they are," Kuhrts says. Kuhrts also told me they like to say they "offer a hand up, not a hand out," it's more than just a shelter to the women and children who stay there.

I met with a resident of Martha's Home and she told me her experience has meant the world to her and her son.
