Our community needs us more than ever! Please remember your items for the North Hollywood Interfaith Food Pantry on Friday, December 10th, at morning carpool. The food pantry is especially in need of hygiene kids. Read below for details.
And don't forget next week's Food for Frosty Challenge from our Student Ambassadors. We're going for 100% participation, and the grade level with the highest participation will win a special shoutout!
What is a hygiene kit?
A personal hygiene kit is used to hold personal care items that clean, comfort and groom a person’s body. Most hygiene kits are used for personal use, travel, homeless people, outdoor recreation or emergency situations like natural disasters. These kits are meant to be used as a short-term solution until regular supplies and facilities are available.
What do you put in a hygiene kit?
At the very least, basic essential personal hygiene kits should include soap, shampoo, toothpaste, and toothbrush. Additional essential items are based on the use. Toiletry items for women might include feminine hygiene products while a men’s hygiene kit might also include a razor and shaving cream. Even a child’s personal hygiene kit might have unique supplies like baby shampoo or children’s toothpaste. Homeless people, rescue shelters and emergency situations will all require additional items in their personal kit. A list of hygiene products commonly used for all types of personal care kits includes travel sizes of the following items:
- Feminine napkins
- Skin lotion
- Wet wipes
