The Hygiene Bank Moira: Call for Donations
#CommunityCalling to help The Hygiene Bank tackle hygiene poverty in Moira
ℹ️ With many drop off points closed, THB need to raise vital funds to purchase hygiene products for local charity partners
❓ CAN YOU HELP?
The Hygiene Bank rely on donations of hygiene products from the public, dropped off to their Collection/Drop Off Points in retail outlets, offices and to our volunteers.
⚠️ Unfortunately since the start of the pandemic these drop off points have either closed or are more difficult to get to. They now need to raise vital funds to purchase the much needed hygiene products for their charity partners.
About The Hygiene Bank
THB cover most counties in NI and their vision would be to cover as many counties as possible enabling them to offer help to more charity partners throughout NI, who include Foodbanks, (Trussell Trust) Community organisations, Simon Community and Women’s Aid.
The ethos is to collect locally and give back to local charities in the community helping to give dignity to those less fortunate. Sadly, hygiene poverty comes with a social stigma that affects all areas of life, work, school and relationships.
Lack of access to hygiene products impacts confidence, self-esteem and prospects in those who are most vulnerable. People miss out on employment and promotion opportunities. Women find themselves housebound because they can’t afford period products, children skip school because they don’t have clean uniform or PE kit.
Any money raised will be used to purchase hygiene products which will be delivered to charitable organisations, enabling them to reach out to individuals in need.
Please donate what you can to help them reach their target for the Aviva Community Fund.
No donation is too small.
