Hygiene Kits: Giving Back with a Homeless Care Package

Hygiene Kits: Giving Back with a Homeless Care Package

Is your business or organization looking to create a community give-back event? Creating hygiene kits with in-demand supplies create the perfect opportunity.

Keyword(s): hygiene kits

There are plenty of ways you can give back. Today we’re going to focus on building hygiene kits for the homeless. 85% of homeless people have chronic health conditions. Having access to proper hygiene supplies can help give them back some control of their health.

Planning a give-back event is a powerful way to grow philanthropy in your community. Not only will it make your community a better place to live, but it’ll also benefit those who are less fortunate.

Follow these easy steps to run a successful give-back event.

Advertising Your Event

You’re going to need to do some advertising to have a successful give-back event. The best way to reach a lot of people for free is by creating an event on Facebook.

Make sure that your event information is thorough and accurate before going live.

Try to promote the event organically before choosing to pay for a boost from Facebook. Invite your friends and encourage them to invite theirs too. Sharing stories, videos, pictures, and updates on the event page can increase its reach, too.

Funding Your Event

You may not have the money necessary to buy the hygiene kit items yourself. But that shouldn’t stop you from hosting a community giveback event. There are ways you can raise money to ensure your event is a success.

One way you can fund your event is by charging an admission fee. When you make your Facebook event, be sure to mention that there is a small fee associated with attending. Some people may question this so explain that this fee will go towards filling the kits.

Make sure you’re clear that if there are any extra funds from the event, they’ll be used towards the next one or donated to appropriate charities. People will want to know exactly where their money is going.

What Should Go Into the Kit?

There are a few necessary personal hygiene supplies that should go into your kits.

Our list below provides a comprehensive view of the essential toiletries that you’ll want to buy for your kits. Travel-size toiletries are ideal because they’ll fit nicely into bags.

Supply List

  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Mouthwash
  • Dental floss
  • Razor
  • Shaving Gel
  • Deodorant
  • Shampoo
  • Body Wash or Bar Soap
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Comb
  • Water
  • Nail clippers
  • Chapstick
  • Washcloths
  • Tube socks
  • Clear Zip-Close Plastic Bags

You may also want to consider creating kits made for women. It’s difficult for homeless women to get the feminine hygiene products they need during menstruation. We recommend adding tampons, pads, and feminine wipes to the kits you make for women.

If this list looks overwhelming, you can purchase bulk hygiene kits online to save on money and time.
