On November 21, 2018, volunteers from Muslim Americans for Compassion and Doctors for Healthy Communities delivered more than 50 blankets and backpacks to Uniting Partners (UP) for Women and Children. UP is Louisville’s first women’s-only day shelter. The organization provides basic hygiene access in addition to case management services. From July 16 (opening day) to October 26 and in 43 shifts (operating Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays) UP had 853 visits from more than 150 women and children. UP assisted with 301 showers and 257 loads of laundry. At this time, UP is collecting coats and cold-weather items such as hats and gloves. However, they also have need for blankets and adult backpacks for guests. For more information, see www.uplouisville.org.
