TOWEL DAY

Collecting Towels for People’s City Mission

“A towel, [The Guide] says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have.” – Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

Towel Day (May 25) started as a worldwide celebration to honor the memory of the late Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (the book from which we get our name).

When the People’s City Mission told us about their shortage of towels, we engineered a towel drive around this celebrated date to help address their easily overlooked need.

For Towel Day 2021, we were able to collect 607 towels for the Mission.

Thank you to everyone who helped bring dignity to those in need with the gift of a towel.
