Project Overview

Many American families struggle to afford basic personal care items and household goods. Food stamps does not cover the cost of personal care and hygiene items. 

33 % of families are unable to afford hygiene and personal care items, report bathing without soap.

Providing personal care and hygiene products helps provide human dignity. Hygiene products help children attend school feeling fresh so they feel comfortable in the learning environment and they assure adults have the dignity they need so they can gain employment. 

Habits of personal hygiene are mostly acquired during childhood, and are, therefore, influenced by one’s family. Poor hygiene habits are a risk factor for preventable disease and social rejection.
