Make/Assemble Hygiene Kits for Runaway and Homeless Youth

Save to Favorites

Pathfinders

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 11 people are interested

Hygiene Kits are an essential resource that we offer to our youth both on-site and in the community. Items such as deodorant, toothpaste, sunscreen, lip balm, cleansing wipes, and feminine hygiene products are just some of the basic items that we believe everyone should have access to. Volunteers often put these supplies in draw string bags or large Ziploc baggies. These can be made at home then dropped off at our Holton Street address.

Current items we are in high need of for youth that can be included are:
-Sturdy Ponchos/Light Rain Jackets
-Wash clothes/items to help keep cool
-Sunscreen
-Advil/Ibuprofen
-Water or Gatorade
-Pre-loaded bus cards
-$5 gift cards to a food place or a small snack
-Tissue Packs
-Hand Sanitizer

If you would like to build these kits from home, please email Volunteer and Community Engagement Manager, Lauren Domski, at ldomski@pathfindersmke.org to coordinate drop-off or pickup details. NOTE: We are asking that these items be purchased/supplied by volunteers in order to participate to mitigate materials being transported out and back into our building as we weather the pandemic realities. Thank you for your support of our youth!
