About

Helping with the essentials of personal and household hygiene, showing God’s grace and love through these tangible gifts.

As we seek to engage and meet needs in the world around us, we’ve learned that families are able to supplement their groceries at area food pantries and, in some cases, through Food Stamp benefits. However, few resources exist for assistance with non-food essentials: household and personal products.

We can help. We’d like to help.

We are the missing piece

What we do isn’t food…
But people don’t have to choose between laundry or food because of PEP. And, people eat safer when they can wash the pots and pans they cook in.

What we do isn’t education…
But kids and adults learn better if they don’t worry about others teasing them about their clothes, odor, or appearance.

What we do isn’t employment…
But people can obtain and keep a job when they’re able to shower, shampoo their hair, wash their clothes and use deodorant.

What we do isn’t housing…
But a landlord will be satisfied with clean floors, windows, sinks and toilets; and more likely to return a security deposit.

What we do isn’t health…
But people are less likely to become sick if they can brush their teeth regularly, and simple scratches will heal quickly without infection if soap is available.

What we do is…

Provide the missing piece of personal and household products that are needed to help people succeed and stay healthy.
