Contribute to Our Supply Drive!

Girl Talk will be collecting needed supplies for the young women at JTDC.  We are collecting the following items:

Body Wash

Scented Lotions


Shampoo and Conditioner (we are particularly interested in products that can be used by African American and Latina girls)

Nail Polish

Deodorant (cannot be the ones with the rolling ball — other types are fine)

Combs (no picks)

T-Shirts (Plain White all sizes)

Hair Ties (not barrettes)

Journals (no rope, metal, ties — just simple books that can be purchased at Borders or Barnes and Noble)

Composition Notebooks (different colors – these can also be used as journals)


Coloring Books and Coloring Pencils

Items will be accepted Mondays-Fridays from 10 am to 5 p.m. at Project NIA’s office which we share with the Rogers Park Community Council, 1530 West Morse Ave.

  1. I’m the president of a group on campus at Roosevelt University and i’m VERY interested in getting a couple of our groups together to gather these things, but we’re all in classes frequently.
    Is there any way we can send things?

    • Hello Olivia,

      Thanks for reaching out to us about this. YES, you can absolutely mail items. I will check with the Cook County Detention Center to ask if they will directly accept donations that are mailed.

      In peace.
