This month, we need

personal items.

For most Edmontonians, personal hygiene is simply a matter of walking into their bathroom and “washing up” or “getting ready”. We don’t really stop to think about it, it’s just a part of our daily routine.

For those living in poverty, personal hygiene comes with a set of struggles – and we help change that by providing clean underwear, bras, feminine hygiene products, toothpaste and toothbrushes, razors, hairbrushes and makeup.

I'ts not just about hygiene;
it's about self worth.

Many of our clients struggle to find adequate clothing – especially women. A bra that fits, makeup and dental hygiene products add to a woman’s self worth, regardless of their situation.
