HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Our families are deeply in need of the basics. By collecting and donating basic necessities, volunteers can make a tremendous impact in their lives and give them some peace of mind.

DESCRIPTION

During the pandemic, our families have relied on us more than ever to help them with basic necessities. We need your help in stocking our shelves to make sure that our families can get what they need. 

If you were not aware, our program is built around the concept of "Learn & Earn". All of our families must first "learn" by participating in our weekly activities, lessons, and/or presentations. They then "earn" tickets that can be spent on items from our "Treasure Chest Store". 

Don't be intimidated by the idea of hosting a collection drive, it can be very simple. You just have to ask your classmates, religious group, colleagues, friends and/or family to help you collect basic necessities.  


ITEMS NEEDED

Basic Necessities (highest need):

  • Diapers (size 1-6)
  • Pull-Ups (size 2T-5T)
  • Baby Wipes

Basic Necessities: 

  • Toilet Paper (preferred in packs of 4 or individually wrapped)
  • Household Disinfectant (bottles)
  • Hand Soap (liquid or bar)
  • Dish Soap

  • Laundry Detergent (liquid, ~100 fl oz bottles preferred)
  • Toothpaste/ Toothbrushes
  • Feminine Pads

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

All items must be new and in their original packaging. Partially used items or unpackaged items will be thrown away. For instance, we will not give our families a tube of toothpaste that is not in its original sealed box.
