Melissa Harding and Claire Kern (Configuration Management at CIA&D) are doing their part to support homeless veterans in our area. They are leading a program called the Clean Start Initiative (CSI), which collects unused toiletries for donation to Patriot House, a local transitional housing program for veterans.

If you would like to help, you can donate unused toiletries today and help a vet make a clean start. Travel-size and full-size items are welcome. They are primarily looking for: Shampoo, Conditioner, Soap (Bar & Body Wash), Deodorant, Razors, Shaving Cream, Mouthwash, Toothpaste, Toothbrushes, and Makeup Removal Wipes.

If you would like to donate any of the above items, please contact Melissa at or visit their Facebook page to learn more:
