Gather the Spirit for Justice...Uniting for the Common Good

Toiletry Collection
Please partner with our neighbors in Allison Hill

Working with the neighbors that attend CGCC, we have identified a need for toiletries.  

Wages are low, rents are high, and toiletries cost way too much. These items are not eligible for purchase through the food stamp program.  Many of our neighbors who attend CGCC are elderly and dependent on Social Security only. There is always “too much month at the end of the money.”

The items below were suggested by CGCC attendees. After the toiletries are donated, CGCC participants will sort and organize for distribution.
  • Deodorant
  • Body wash bar soap - No Irish Spring or Ivory, please
  • Hand/Body lotion
  • Toothbrushes, individually wrapped toothpaste
  • Tampons/Sanitary napkins
  • Condoms
  • Diapers (Baby, Toddler)
  • Adult pull ups (e.g., Depends)/incontinent pads
  • Toilet paper
  • Paper towels
  • Tissues
Items may be dropped off at Market Street during CGCC hours (10-12 M, W, F) or at a CGC breakfast. THANK YOU!
