If you care to add something else, that's fine! Make sure it doesn't need refrigeration and has a long shelf life to prevent spoiling. If you buy the items in bulk, feel free to add more than per item. Be careful the bags fill up quickly!
*Noticed the items with an asterisk next to them, they are the essentials for a hygiene kit. The other items are optional to maximize your kits.
Note: At the dollar store, I found a 3 pack of toothbrushes that came with 3 toothbrush cases for only $1!
These items can also be found at a thrift store for cheap. You can also donate gently used items from your very own closet. Again, a small blanket is optional if there is room in your bag.
Where to donate:
If you wish to donate back packs, any items to add to bags or finished bags to Operation South Jersey, you can drop them off at our ongoing drop off spot at:
1163 Shiloh Pike
Bridgeton, NJ 08302
or contact us to arrange a pick up.
Would you rather do your own drop off? That's great! You can hand off to a homeless individual on the streets, homeless shelter, or a local code blue outreach program in your area. Share your story with us! Email us or Facebook us your story with pictures! Help us share our flyer via social media.
