Challenge

COVID-19 has caused a global pandemic, and is most lethal to the elderly and medically fragile. This fund will provide a stockpile of hygiene necessities to high risk populations living in poverty at no cost, enabling them to self isolate to minimize risk of contracting this deadly disease.

Solution

We can enable people to self-sufficiency through meeting basic needs that many of us take for granted as part of every day life. Our organization focuses first on hygiene items, such as diapers, period products and adult care needs. We partner with other nonprofits to reach single parents, girls in school and more Our basic needs bank is full of items that enable quality life in modern society, custom to family needs, and expands our operations include crisis closet support.

Long-Term Impact

We know alleviating the financial burden of basic hygiene supplies creates room for people to afford more basic needs. Providing hygiene items therefore becomes an essential tool in empowering people to live clean, healthy and active lives and make a big difference toward the movement to end poverty.
