Personal Items

We are always in need of personal hygiene items and cleaning supplies.  Most people don’t think to donate these items to a food pantry, however they are needed and necessary.  They can be expensive and are not covered by SNAP benefits.  Our customers’ priority is meeting the food needs of their family and as a result these items are often lacking.  These products are so important for our customer’s self-esteem.  Please consider helping our neighbors in need.  Dollar stores are a great source for these items as many items can be purchased for a dollar.

Personal hygiene and cleaning supplies for women and children:

  • Soap,
  • Shampoo/Conditioner
  • Toothpaste/Toothbrush
  • Laundry Pods
  • Feminine Hygiene Products
  • Baby Food
  • Diapers
  • Manual Can Openers
  • Dog/Cat Food
