Henry County Public Health Hygiene Product Drive

Henry County Public Health will collect personal hygiene products to donate to local food pantries from February 20th through March 20th. Items can be dropped off at their office Monday – Friday 8am-4pm. Items needed include travel size or regular size shampoo, conditioner, body soap, toothbrushes & toothpaste (adult and child), deodorant, body lotion, comb, razors, shaving cream, menstrual products, hand soap, dish soap, and laundry detergent.

“We have heard from our food pantries that personal hygiene products as well as food donations are always needed and since so many others do food drives we thought we’d try a hygiene product drive,” states Kelly Carr, Community Outreach Coordinator. “Many people may not realize that SNAP and WIC benefits don’t cover non-food items like toiletries so this is another way we can help families in need.”

Public Health is located at 106 E. Jackson Street in Mt. Pleasant. For more information on food pantries to donate directly, or to find other community resources, visit HealthyHenryCounty.org/resources.
