Donate, volunteer for “Toiletries for Teens Drive”
In celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the City of Vancouver, Kaiser Permanente and Bridge Chiropractic are hosting a “Toiletries for Teens Drive” to give local teens a fresh start in 2016.
Donations of new, unopened toiletries will be accepted from Dec. 31 to Jan. 14 at 16 locations throughout the city (see list below). All donated toiletries will go to the Pantry Project, a program which provides non-perishable food and essential toiletries to nearly 12,000 limited income high school students in the Evergreen Public School District.
This year, we are collecting the top ten, most needed toiletries for teens and their families:
- Deodorant for boys and girls
- Laundry detergent
- Shampoo and conditioner
- Feminine hygiene
- Toilet paper
- Body soap/wash
- Dish/hand soap
- Hair styling products
Donation sites include nine City of Vancouver buildings, three Kaiser Permanente clinics and five Bridge Chiropractic offices. See full list below.
