  • 2023 Hygiene Kits Drive

    Join the competition and help those in need! 

    We will be collecting travel size hygiene items for the Urban Outreach Center (UOC) to distribute. Items we're collecting include shampoo, conditioner, soap, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, wipes/tissues, and q-tips.

    The drive will be a competition between homerooms. In order for your donation to count for your homeroom, you must label the bag you donate in with your homeroom number. We would prefer if you could bring your donations in a ziplock baggie or brown paper lunch bag, but anything works.

    The drive will start on Monday, February 27 and end on Friday, March 10. The donation bin will be in the lobby, next to Agent Skinner’s desk. Our goal is to collect a total of 125 Hygiene Kits, so that everyone at the UOC can get one!
