About KindnessKits

Kindness Kits

Kindness Kits are hygiene product packs containing personal care items (soap, deodorant, oral care), feminine hygiene essentials (tampons, pads, liners) or household helps (laundry detergent, dish soap).

Products are gathered or purchased with donated funds.

Volunteers then combine the items into kits.

Finished Kindness Kits are then provided to partner agencies like food pantries, police departments, organizations and schools who then distribute the kindness kits to those they serve.

 

Periodic additions (lip balm, washcloth, scrub brush) and additional kits are planned seasonally and as available.
