It is now officially spring time and ReBath of Amarillo is collecting unwanted spring cleaning items. This drive will benefit Martha's Home and Habitat for Humanity.

Martha's Home is a homeless shelter program in Amarillo specifically for women and children. It has been around for 30 years, filling a need for women and children who are without homes.

"We're serving the homeless women in our community by teaching them life skills, helping them apply for school, helping them get permanent housing when they move out and giving them supplies when they move out as well," said Sarah Silva, Director of Public Relations for Martha's Home.

ReBath of Amarillo, which is a bathroom remodeling store has had connections with Martha's Home for some time now. The two groups got together and decided to host a donation drive to benefit the women and children.

"It's just really important to ReBath to be able to help Martha's Home," said Mary Kay Kuhrts, Marketing Director at ReBath. "We have a long history there and we just believe in the work that Martha's home is doing in helping homeless women and children."

ReBath will use its trailer to hold the donations. The drive will be on Saturday March 25 from 10 to 4 and at Habitat for Humanity's Restore location at 4117 SW 34th Ave. Anyone can stop by with unwanted items to donate. Pizza from Giovanni's will also be served, starting at 11:30.

"If you're spring cleaning this week, which most people are, clean out all that clutter and clean out the cabinets and bring your unwanted, gently-used items to us and we will be so happy to take them," said Silva.

The women who are a part of Martha's Home will eventually move to permanent housing, but they will need home goods items to live. The donation drive is mostly looking for bathroom, kitchen and other home items.

"When they move out, we try to set them up in their new homes so that kind of stuff is always needed," Silva said.

"Kitchen or bathroom or anything really that will help the women moving out get independent and get started in their own place," said Kuhrts.

There will also be raffle tickets for a Never-Cook-Again basket. The money raised in raffle tickets will go to Martha's Home. There are also prizes to win through ReBath.
