Many of the homeless that come to our doors don’t have the resources or money to purchase hygiene products. Being able to shave, brush their teeth, and get cleaned-up is important for increased self-esteem and also for good health. For many men, women and children – these products are a luxury. Hygiene items include: travel size soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, razor, shaving cream, and deodorant.
A Hygiene Drive is a great way to help someone gain their confidence back and begin the path to a restored life. Start your drive today!

Kids Helping Kids
Today, many children are philanthropy minded and want to help other kids in need. One great area of need during the summer and holiday months is kid friendly food drives. Low-Income kids dread their vacations when they don’t have school breakfasts and lunches. Usually in low-income families, the parents are working and the kids are home. Hunger never takes a vacation. Our goal is to equip these kids with a Kid Approved items that they can safely eat and enjoy.
We have put together a shopping list that will help your kids know what type of food items we need the most for our food boxes or food pantry program. The most request items are Mac & Cheese and different kinds of cereal.
