Volunteers will package Hygiene Kits for Distribution to Clients. The main goal of Atheists helping the homeless is to distribute packs of easy-to-carry toiletries (hygiene kits) and nonperishable food to people without homes, COVID-19 permitting. Not every item goes into every pack, but we provide good cross-sections of those things that people need, people who are on their feet every day, all day. We always provide socks and flashlights for our clients. We provide materials that people without homes may not have as they sleep in tents, cars, or shelters. The items are small enough that they can easily be carried throughout the day, between shelters, in a backpack or a plastic shopping bag. Hygiene Kits Can Include Backpacks (as available), Boxer shorts, Compressed cotton “coins” that expand and serve as toilet paper, Deodorant, Face masks, Face towels, Feminine hygiene products, Flashlight with batteries (mini), Gloves (in winter), Hand cream/body lotion, Individually wrapped toothpicks with floss end, Lip balm, Face Masks, Nail Clippers, Nonperishable food, Paper shower/full body wipe, Pull-down hats (in winter), Safety Razors with shaving cream, Shampoo, Soap, Socks, Toothbrush and toothpaste, Towelettes/wipes.
