Community Hygiene Pantry relies on support from the community in order to obtain the hygiene items needed to distribute to individuals and families in need.

Some of you ways you can help are:

  • Donation Drive: You can conduct a drive to collect hygiene items and/or money to donate to us. This is an excellent option for groups, clubs, teams, etc. 
  • Amazon Wish List: We have an amazon wish list where you can purchase items on the list and they will be shipped directly to us.  This link will take you to our Amazon Wish List:

Donation Drives are an excellent way to help help us fill our shelves

This donation drive was conducted by a local school that chose to help us collect hygiene items for our pantry in honor of World Kindness Day. What a great way to teach children, and the world,  what it means to be kind. We are so thankful for all of the support we are shown. Our community is better because of your kindness.
