Liz Terwilliger For Congress is sponsoring a community drive to provide personal care and hygiene products to individuals and families who are faced with urgent need of these items. From now until March 28th items will be collected at locations throughout the area. The collected products will be distributed in the form of individual kits to those in need through a pop-up pantry style event in early April.
“It is easy to forget that personal care items are a luxury to individuals and families in difficult financial times like these,” explained Liz Terwilliger. “To address this need, we have partnered with local businesses to place collection bins throughout the community. We will be creating individual kits with donated items and distributing them in a pop-up pantry style event where the public will be invited to drive up and receive a kit of products. We will have two different kits available, those with and without feminine hygiene products. Most people who are in need are associated with a community support organization. I wanted to directly distribute the donations to community members to reach people who might otherwise be missed, people who aren’t necessarily getting support somewhere else.”
“I am grateful to all the business owners who have joined us in this effort,” said Liz. “These businesses are not participating in support of my campaign, they simply stepped forward to help create change in our community.” Businesses hosting donation bins include FWF Wellness in Sayre, The Hair Mill in Wysox, Mad Hatters Café and Co-Op in Athens, Endless Mountains Brace and Mobility in Troy, Triple F Farms LLC in Gillett and Clock Works Coffee in Westfield. “Woodland Art of Warren Center is sponsoring an online donation option,” Liz explained, “so that people can donate funds to the drive if they can’t deliver items to one of these businesses. All of the funds donated will be used to create the individual kits.” Businesses interested in joining our effort can sign up at https://tinyurl.com/1oi0lpo9
“We often focus on the essentials of food and housing for people in crisis,” said Liz. “But these personal care and hygiene items can be easily overlooked. Something simple, like a toothbrush, can really improve someone’s life and their sense of wellbeing.”
