Feel Your Best
3 hygiene kits
Alternatives for Girls
The Outreach Department serves women who live and work on the streets. Through the Safe Choices project, volunteers drive the AFG van on 2 2-hour shifts every weekday evening providing hygiene kits, among other supplies, to at-risk women on the streets. These hygiene kits are made up of travel-sized shampoo, soap, lotion, toothpaste, and other essential hygiene material. The women depend on us to provide these resources since many cannot afford these items.
Your $10 donation will provide 3 hygiene kits. Last year, through the Safe Choices program, we distributed 838 hygiene kits to the women on the streets. However, we depend on the items to be donated for the hygiene kits, and there were many nights where we ran out of hygiene kits to pass out. We also have a walk-in resource room with a shower. For women living on the street, a shower can sometimes be a rarity. When these women come in for a shower, we give them a hygiene kit at that time too. These hygiene kits are very important for the welfare of the women we serve – as in the case for all of us, when we feel clean, we feel stronger, happier, and more confident. Your gift will be a great show of support Alternatives For Girls and for work that we do.
