HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Hope and Comfort's mission is to distribute basic hygiene products to improve the health and self-esteem of local youth in-need.

DESCRIPTION

Collect hygiene product donations and make a difference while you celebrate Halloween!


ITEMS NEEDED

Hope & Comfort will accept ANY unused hygiene products, but we are especially in need of full-size shampoo, toothpaste and deodorant.


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

If you sign up by Oct 20, Hope and Comfort will send you a free bag to hold the hygiene products you collect.


NEXT STEPS

For your collection, will you ask for hygiene items while you trick-or-treat?  Have your classmates bring hygiene items to school?  Invite guests to bring a hygiene product to your Halloween Party?  Make a plan and spread the word.  Every product makes a difference.  Scroll down to "VIEW INSTRUCTIONS" for details.
