COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of keeping ourselves, our families, and our homes clean and germ-free. But, how do you do this if you have lost your job and cannot afford to buy paper towels, toilet paper, all-purpose cleaner or detergent?
While SNAP (Food Stamps) allows you to use your benefit to buy food (and, believe it or not, pizza, candy, soda, steak, and even lobster), it does not provide a provision to allow recipients to buy paper, cleaning, or hygiene items.
With unemployment rates on the rise, our Food Bank partners are struggling to meet the increased demand. Requests for paper, cleaning, and hygiene items have become more common, but these items are often not among the products that they receive as donations.
We are a 100% volunteer organization that raises funds, conducts product drives, and increases awareness of this problem.
In 2020, we donated more than 6,200 items to our Food Bank partners and we have become a reliable source for ensuring that those in need have access to the paper, cleaning, and hygiene items to keep themselves, their families, and their homes clean and germ-free.
Killing germs keeps people safer, healthier, and reduces the probability of contracting food and germ-based illnesses. This is a win for individuals, families, and the healthcare system.
We make EVERY. DOLLAR. COUNT.
Ninety percent of funds raised are used to purchase the paper, cleaning, and hygiene items in greatest demand by our Food Bank partners. The remaining ten percent has been used to purchase liability insurance, stationery, t-shirts for our volunteers, and to pay for domain and web hosting,
