  • 1 person is interested

Pathfinders serve youth ages 6 to 25 years who are often accessing our services in need of basic hygiene items. We feel all people deserve the right to have access to these basic items to lead healthy, independent lives.

If you or your group are able to host a drive for hygiene items, please respond to this post and our Volunteer and Community Engagement Manager will reach out with next steps and updates regarding what items are in highest need right now.

Items that are often in high need year-round are:

  • Men's boxers/women's underwear (any size)
  • Socks
  • Deodorant/body wipes
  • Body wash (men & women's)
  • Lotion
  • Diva cups/feminine pads
  • Vaseline
  • 1-2 snacks (tuna packs, ramen cups, beef jerky, crackers, etc.)
  • Carmex Lip Balm
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Wide-tooth comb/pick
  • Bottle of water/Gatorade
  • Rain poncho or cooling towel
  • Gum/candy
  • Cloth or disposable mask
  • Pre-loaded bus card or $5 fast-food gift card (many youth are looking for a hot meal)
  • Backpacks

It is greatly appreciated if volunteers can pack these items into draw-string backpacks. Otherwise, large Ziplocs also work. Thank you for your support of our young people!
