  2. Call on your community. 
    • Are you part of a book club or church group? Do you work in an office? Want to do something fun and different for your birthday or another important life events? Gather and inform your group of people to help and let them spread the word!
  3. Decide what you want to donate. 
    • The following items are generally always needed:
      • Bras and panties (bras can be gently used or new, panties must be new and in packaging)
      • Hygiene items such as feminine hygiene products, full sized shampoos and conditioners, deodorant, dental care products, etc.
      • Socks (must be new in packaging)
      • Jeans and leggings
