Today, four altruistic Hamlin 8th graders prepared 150 hygiene kits supporting the work of Simply the Basics.
The Mission of Simply the Basics is to provide for individuals, organizations, and communities their most basic needs with dignity so that they can focus on bigger goals. We simply remove barriers, allowing people to have the opportunity to achieve.
The goals of Simply the Basics include:
-improving the overall health and wellbeing of low income families and people experiencing homelessness
-facilitating the operations of nonprofit organizations by securing and managing their in-kind donation process, allowing them to focus their time on clients
Hamlin students worked diligently to make sure that each kit had toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, socks, razors, tampons, and pads (among other items). The hygiene kits were then delivered to the Gubbio Project and St. Anthony’s.
