Hygiene for Humanity is United Way of Will County's unified approach to bring corporate partners, donors and volunteers together, to collect needed hygiene items/supplies that are provided to Family Support Day attendees, school districts and community organizations.
Hygiene items collected through our community approach, are packed into hygiene kits and distributed directly to families. Items collected are those that are not WIC or SNAP eligible, meaning that families that are already struggling and experiencing homelessness, are not able to purchase hygiene items for their families.
For 2018, three Family Support Day events will take place, dates pending:
Joliet: Spring Drive: April 21, 2018 from 9AM-11AM @ Joliet West
Crete: Summer Drive: August @ Crete-Monee School District Administration Center
Bolingbrook: Fall Drive: October or November @ Bolingbrook High School
- Celebrating its 10th year, United Way of Will County has partnered with the Will County Regional Office of Education to collect hygiene items to support local families.
- This long-standing partnership and initiative was officially named a United Way of Will County program in 2016.
- Organizations, community groups and individuals looking to help are encouraged to host a hygiene item supply drive to coordinate with an identified event - 3 opportunities annually. Full-sized items needed include:
· Bars of soap
· Tooth brushes
· Tooth paste
· Feminine hygiene products
· Disposable razors
- Organizations and groups have the option to pack the the items into a Hygiene Kit before delivery
- Items collected must be delivered by April 16, 2018 directly to:
Ron O’Connor, McKinney-Vento Liaison
Will County Regional Office of Education
702 W. Maple Street
New Lenox, Illinois 60451
