Everyday the homeless and low income families have to choose between personal hygiene and their next meal. Invariably hygiene loses the battle.
We serve about 400 homeless and low income people every month in the state of Delaware. For them, just buying their daily meal is a struggle. As the day ends they have no money to buy personal hygiene kits. These hygiene kits will promote healthy and happy living for them and the community they live in. Being healthy and happy creates opportunities for them to find jobs and take care of them.
If your family would like provide support for hygiene drive you can donate by clicking the link below. If you need more information please contact Jay Muthukamatchi at JM@Charitycrossing.org
“Experiencing poverty and/or homelessness can contribute to health issues, while health issues can contribute to poverty and homelessness” – Wooley
As the food is the number one concern amongst homeless and low-income people, hygiene gets put aside. Hygiene is equally important to eliminate health concerns related to cleanliness. Using toilet paper and other unhealthy objects cause severe infections. A key factor that helps relieve the homeless from health issues and infections is access to hygienic supplies. Particularly for women, to stay healthy during their menstrual cycle.
Please join our effort to provide hygiene products to those in need to help them stay healthy.
