Toiletry Totes Ministry

MISSION:   To provide hygiene necessities to the children in need in Flagler County schools.  We take in lots of food here at Grace Community Food Pantry, but that’s not the only way to help out.  You may not realize how much certain hygiene products can help someone who can’t afford them.  We’ll go over some of the important items needed so you can keep an eye out for them the next time you go shopping.

Basic Toiletries

Toiletries that we use every day have a different meaning for a child whose family is struggling with money or without a home. You can often find packs of these kinds of items on sale, which is a great time to pick up a few extra ones to donate. Consider some of these items the next time you want to donate:

  • Deodorant

  • Soap and shower gel

  • Shampoo and conditioner

  • Face and body wash

Dental Hygiene Items

Dental hygiene is such an important part of keeping ourselves healthy. Maintaining our teeth can also help with confidence issues related to bad breath or yellowed teeth. Remember that you need to donate dental hygiene products unopened and unused for them to be acceptable. Toothpaste, toothbrushes, mouthwash, and dental floss are all useful donation items.

Feminine Hygiene Items

Despite the extreme importance of menstrual health items, they can be prohibitively expensive for some people. Those who can’t access these products may have to turn to much more unsanitary methods to protect themselves unless we help them out. Your donation of tampons, disposable pads, and even reusable pads can be invaluable to someone in need.

Please consider giving to the Toiletry Totes Ministry the next time you go shopping.  To make a monetary donation, please issue a check to Grace Community Food Pantry, write “Toiletries” on the memo line and mail it to:

P. O. Box 353458, Palm Coast, FL  32135

  If you would like to drop off toiletries in person, please go by the Pantry

on Tuesday or Thursday between 9:00 am – 11:00 am.

Yours truly,

Jennifer Lalaram
