Dignity packages are personal hygiene and cleaning products. These are items that are considered luxuries to the poorest amongst us. Items that are not provided through government assistance programs.
Items needed include:
Shampoo & Conditioner
Body Wash & Soaps
Feminine Hygeine products
Dish Soap & Cleaners
Items that many take for granted and are used on a daily basis are needed.
Compassion Baskets are filled with comfort items to provide reassurance and hope to those suffering a cancer diagnosis or traumatic medical event. Often times the simplest of things mean the most and reminding that attitude is everything! A warm blanket or soft towels, a comfort beverage or soothing bath, a inspirational book or some beauty products. Each is personalized and a pharmacy or super center gift card is an amazing addition to making life easier during the battle.
