Our Bare Necessities "Non-Food Pantry" offers the basics for household and personal hygiene for free!
The mission of the Bare Necessities pantry is to support Audubon Park Food
Bank clients or anyone else in need by offering personal hygiene and household cleaning products - because every person has the right to feel clean.
Sandi Nicol, a church member, realized
after a toothbrush drive that many of our Food Bank clients (as well as people experiencing poverty or homelessness and/or those on limited incomes) don't always have the funds for or access to basic hygiene and cleaning supplies on a regular basis.
So she started taking donations for
these items, and now hosts the Bare Necessities Non-Food Pantry twice a month (the 2nd and 4th Tuesday, same as the Food Bank), where
guest can “shop” from the donated items. Our offerings are limited but we are committed to continue to help those in need with what we can.
Want to help? If you are friendly and willing to help people shop and
answer simple questions about products, consider volunteering with the Bare
Necessities or if you would like to donate items contact the church office.
You can also connect with this ministry through our Bare Necessities Facebook page to find out donation needs and other ways you can support this ministry.
