About

Because life happens.... Sometimes you just need a hand up - maybe you lost a job, or there was a death in the family, or perhaps a large medical bill arrives. At different times, in our lifes we need help. Johnson County Human Services helps our neighbors in need by providing services such as utility assistance and food pantry. Our food pantries flucuate through the year. We always can utilize donations of non-perishable food items, but another area most people forget about is hygiene. Did you know that residents can not use their EBT cards (formerly known as food stamps) for personal hygiene products such as toilet paper, shampoo, or soap. You can help!

1) Host a HYGIENE Drive-Collect items that can not be purchased with an EBT card

  • Toilet Paper
  • Hand/Bath Soap
  • Shampoo/Conditioner
  • Deodorant
  • Lotion
  • Toothbrush/Toothpaste
  • Laundry Detergent
  • Paper Towels
  • Cleaning Products
  • Dish Soap

2) Get Some Help- Ask your Work, Faith Organization, or Community Group to post something in their newsletter or social media about the hygiene drive and setup a collection bin for donations

3) Deliver- Schedule a time to drop off donations to one of our Multi-Service Centers 913-715-8859 or email Brandy.Hodge@jocogov.org
