Assembling Hygiene Kits for Children and Adults in Need with Shoebox Ministry in the Greater Phoenix Area

Earlier today employees from Suburban Propane’s SuburbanRNG Stanfield facility partnered with Shoebox Ministry volunteers to assemble kits at the nonprofit’s Phoenix headquarters. Thousands of children and adults face adversity and may experience varying levels of housing insecurity. In these unfortunate circumstances, individuals and families may get deprived of standard necessities like toiletries and hygiene items, which many people take for granted.

Suburban Propane’s contribution donated 1,000 hygiene kits for distribution among children and adults in need throughout the Greater Phoenix Area. Each package contains an assortment of toiletries like soap, shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, and other necessities that will provide care for up to 30 days.  This effort is a part of the SuburbanCares® community-giving initiative, centered on helping the local communities in which the Company operates across 42 states.

“In difficult times, many people including the homeless, working poor, and domestic abuse survivors cannot afford essentials like soap and shampoo,” said Adele Crowley, Shoebox Ministry’s volunteer coordinator.

Every day people within their community struggle with receiving basic supplies, such as food, hygiene items, or even shelter. It’s one of the reasons that nonprofit organizations like Shoebox Ministry are vital. With compassion and care, they provide critical support while helping restore dignity to the people they serve.

For over 30 years, Shoebox Ministry facilitates the collection and distribution of toiletry items to various agencies that serve the homeless, domestic violence survivors, people in recovery, the working poor, and other individuals who cannot afford hygiene items in the greater Phoenix area.
