Basic Needs Initiative

Providing personal care items for local families in need

 

personal care items

 

Every day, many struggling families have to make difficult choices with their limited income.
Economic hardship in our community has been deepened by the pandemic, and prices continue to increase on many basic essentials. Not having enough funds to afford the basic necessities creates significant stress on households — both financially and emotionally.

Our Basic Needs Initiative has been tackling these issues since its launch in November 2021.
We are providing local families with a consistent supply of personal hygiene products in order to
relieve some of their financial burden.

 

NEW, Full-Size & Branded Items Needed:

  • Shampoo & conditioner
  • Body wash or bar soap
  • Feminine hygiene products
    (tampons & ultra-thin pads)
  • Deodorant (men's & women's)
  • Toothbrushes & toothpaste
  • Children's shampoo/conditioner
    (2-in-one or 3-in-one)
