Need for Personal Care Items
Necessities such as laundry soap, deodorant, toilet paper, shampoo, and toothpaste are in high demand for people in need. For kids from low-income families or job seekers trying to secure employment, not having access to personal care products makes hygiene hard—when it doesn't need to be.
Oral hygiene products, in particular, can help support the overall health of people without access to personal care products. Donated oral health products can make a big difference, especially for people who may not get to the dentist very often. For example, regular brushing and flossing can help prevent plaque from hardening into tartar deposits that require a dental visit to remove.
