To aid those who have come upon difficult times, we need various things to get back on their feet. We take in lots of clothes here at GreenDrop, but that’s not the only way to help out. Many people don’t realize how much certain hygiene products can help someone who can’t afford them normally. We’ll go over some of the important hygiene items you should donate so that you can keep an eye out for them the next time you go shopping.
Toiletries that we use every day have a different meaning for someone struggling with money or someone 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:
- Soap and shower gel
- Shampoo and conditioner
- Face and body wash
- Razors and shaving cream
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.
Menstrual 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.
Baby Care Supplies
Some seriously important hygiene items you should donate are products related to caring for young children. You can also usually buy these in large quantities, and they’re immensely valuable to families in need. There are quite a few different products to consider donating, including these essentials:
- Baby wipes
- Baby food or formula
- Clothing for infants and small children
When you want to help out, don’t be afraid to think outside the box. If you need a donation pickup in NJ, GreenDrop can help you out. We’ll be glad to take whatever you can give off your hands.
