Neighbors, Inc. serves the community in Northern Dakota county who might be experiencing emergency or food insecurity. In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are focusing our efforts in serving families through our monthly food shelf. Residents can call in to request assistance, we will pre-pack food and personal care items to be used in the coming month. We are serving an average of 40 households a day. One of the items in high demand is personal care items. Volunteers who are willing to purchase supplies can create kits containing personal care items into gallon ziplock bags. Before the donation reaches the community, we will add some toilet paper and laundry detergent. When you are able to drop these packages off, please label the boxes as "Personal Care Kits," with your name and address.

Directions:

  • Gather supplies - Full sized personal care items - Shampoo, soap, toothpaste, tooth brushes, razors and gallon ziplocks
  • Fill the ziplocks with items. Tooth brushes must remain individually sealed but razors can be broken down in packaging so that two go out with each kit.
  • Package in a box, label the outside with with "Personal Care Kits" and your name and address.
  • Contact Jenny at Neighbors to schedule a delivery (or a possible pick up if nearby)
