Personal care is a human right
Personal care items such as soap, shampoo, toothpaste and toilet paper are not covered by federal assistance. These products cannot be purchased with WIC or SNAP benefits.
Interfaith constantly hears requests from food pantry clients in need of these personal care items. We have placed a focus on sourcing these items so that we can distribute a bag of personal care items to clients upon each visit to the food pantry.
These bags include basic hygiene items including:
- Bars of soap
- Toilet paper
- Toothbrushes, toothpaste and dental floss
We need your help! Consider making a monthly donation to sustain this program.
Donations may be dropped off at the Food Pantry during these hours:
How Can I Help?
Our personal care program needs your support! Here are a few ways you can help:
Make a monthly recurring donation to sustain this program throughout the year. A $25 donation each month provides more than 300 personal care bags over the span of a year.
Run a personal care drive at your school, organization or place of business. Collect items and assemble care kits. Contact Food Pantry Manager Eileen Kelly for a current list of desired items or print this flyer (PDF).
