Opportunity Details

Pack Personal Care Packages

Help children, families, and veterans meet their basic needs by assembling personal care packages! With the economic impact of COVID-19, even more people are finding that they need to make tough choices – between buying laundry detergent and having food for breakfast, or between filling the car up with gas and buying a pair of shoes. Necessities provided through volunteers and personal care drives can help relieve some of the burden. Assembled care packages will be distributed to children, veterans, elderly, homeless and vulnerable populations throughout United Way’s service area of Itasca County and surrounding communities. Find instructions online.

Items* to include:

  • laundry detergent
  • cleaning supplies
  • toothbrushes
  • toothpaste
  • deodorant
  • hair care products
  • basic first aid items
  • diapers
  • baby wipes
  • menstrual products
  • towels & wash cloths

*Items must be new and unopened/unused

This is a great at-home or pop-up volunteering opportunity! Express interest to learn more or get help setting up a packing party.
