The Friendly Center, just as their name suggests, is an organization that helps those in need – and they’ve been doing it since 1923. They assist with basic needs like food and education, but also provide hygiene products to help support the health and wellness of those who otherwise may find it difficult to take care of themselves.
The center has a great need for simple, everyday hygiene supplies, so we packed a few bags with toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, feminine hygiene products, razors, shaving cream and the like. These types of donations help charities stretch budgets and focus their resources on other needs and that, in turn, allows them to aid more people.
Next time you’re stocking up on supplies for yourself, consider picking up an extra and donating it to a local agency.
