Our Personal Essentials Ministry helps restore human dignity. What if you had to choose between buying food or toilet paper?
For many in our community, affording even the most basic personal hygiene products is a struggle. Our Personal Essentials Ministry, in partnership with Circle of Concern Food Pantry, offers basic personal care items that Food Stamps won’t cover to 600+ families each month.
Here’s what we collect and provide to families:
- Toilet paper – 3,600 rolls/month
- Shampoo – 600 bottles/month
- Tampons (36 count) – 360 boxes/month
- Razors (4 pack) – 600/month
- Shaving cream – 600 cans/month
We depend on monthly donations of the above items to meet the needs of struggling people in our community! Please pick up extras of these products while shopping for yourself, or make a financial donation online (please select Personal Essentials from the drop down menu) or by check (write “personal essentials” in the memo line). All financial donations are tax deductible.
