Clean Start 2023

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 combined the items into kits.

Finished Kindness Kits are then provided to partner agencies like Washington County Food Pantry, who then distribute the kindness kits to those they serve.

Three Kindness Kits are available with periodic additions (lip balm, washcloth, scrub brush) planned to each kit as available. 


Personal Care

Soap, Shampoo, Deodorant, Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Comb and more.


Period Pak

Tampons (Regular and Super), Panty Liners, Ultra Thin Pads, Wipes and more.
