Build a Kit

Donate a Personal Care Kit to help someone in need — either right here at home or around the world. Personal Care Kits make an impact on many precious lives: kits have helped refugee families in crisis meet their basic needs, mothers recovering from natural disasters take care of their children, and touched the lives of local people experiencing homelessness.

How to Build a Personal Care Kit:

  1. Fill a Gallon-size zip storage bag with these unused items:
    • 2 combs and/or brushes
    • 2 large bars of soap or 6-8 hotel-size bars (in original packaging)
    • 2 new washcloths (in different colors)
    • 6 toothbrushes (in original packaging)
    • 1 large tube of toothpaste or 4 travel-size tubes (in original packaging – expiring at least 2 years from the drop-off date)
    • 1 package of dental floss (in original packaging – expiring at least 2 years from the drop-off date, if an expiration date is marked on the packaging)
  2. Label your bag with the earliest expiration date included on one of the items (toothpaste or floss)
  3. Bring or mail your Personal Care Kit to our distribution center. It’s open Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 4:00pm.

SHOPPING TIPS: When you select items for Personal Care Kits, think of these words — basic and colorful. Select basic bath soaps, rather than ornamental ones. Choose basic and colorful toothbrushes.
