Donating Stockpile Items + Hygiene Kits


Making kits are very simple, the items I didn’t have in my stockpile I got at the Dollar store.
Hygiene kits provide disaster victims with basic items necessary for health and cleanliness.

Assembly Instructions
2 unbreakable combs (no sharp handles)
4 toothbrushes (packaged)
1 tube of toothpaste (6-8 oz., no pumps)
2 bars of soap (approximately 4 to 5 oz.)
2 hand towels (new towels, approximately 15? by 25?. Please do not use dish towels or washcloths. To sew towels, serge or zigzag the edges of terry cloth to make a 15? by 25? towel.)

Now, I will deliver these to my Bishops Storehouse to be sent to Haiti. If I didn’t live close to a storehouse I could have mailed them. Once donated, these items are processed and prepared for shipment to where they are needed most. In a typical year, the Latter-day Saint Humanitarian Center will ship about 12 million pounds of shoes and clothing, 1 million hygiene kits, and 1 million pounds of medical supplies to relieve suffering in more than 100 countries.

    If you want to make hygiene kits on a tight budget, you can definitely afford to do it. Last year I made five for twenty five dollars by buying the supplies at the dollar store. A hygiene kit serves a family of four, and may make the difference between life or death by e-coli or cholera.

    I also had thought that many freebies would make great additions to hygeine kits for the humanitarian center. Thanks for this post!

    actually have a place here in my town that ships to the troops and families one of my neighbors volunteer there and I am going to ask for their list. Thanks for sharing.
