Shoebox Ministry, Inc. received $10,000 from Thunderbirds Charities to help meet the increased demand of our hygiene kits. This grant will provide 25,000 days of hygiene, health, dignity, and safety for Arizonans in need.
Our hygiene kits include basic, but extremely important necessities such as shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, washcloths, soap, feminine hygiene products, and new socks. On a weekly basis, Shoebox receives toiletry item donations from local business and dedicated supporters. We also purchase additional items in need and our staff and volunteers then assemble the products into complete hygiene kits. These kits are then distributed via our network of nearly 50 partner agencies such as Tempe Community Action Agency, The Boys and Girls Clubs of the Valley, Nourish Phoenix, and many others. These hygiene kits will provide essential items to veterans, people with disabilities, at risk youth, individuals in recovery, the LGBTQ community, domestic violence survivors and many others that are in need.
