About

So you may be thinking - school is getting out - why are these kits needed? Summer is a great time to start helping acquire kits to be given out in August when school starts again! Did you know that there are 2500+ students in Polk County who are homeless and many who are living out of cars with their families? From your home, school, clubhouse or church - collect & package Hygiene Kits to be given to these students.

Hygiene kits are comprised of individual Gallon-Size Bags to be filled with NEW FULL-SIZED: Bath soap Deodorant Brush/Comb Washcloths 2 in 1 Shampoo/Conditioner Toothbrushes & Toothpaste. Gift cards for food, gas, and clothing are other beneficial resources for Hearth students and families. These kits are needed throughout the school year!

This is a great project for individuals of most ages, clubs, civic groups, employee volunteer teams, church groups, etc. and could even be done at your workplace, company picnic, church, clubhouse or meeting site.
