Hygiene for Humanity Program Mission

Hygiene for Humanity is a United Way of Will County initiative that promotes having both a healthy body and mind by increasing access to full-sized, personal hygiene products.

How Hygiene for Humanity Works

Through a collaboration with the Will County Regional Office of Education, and other community partnerships, United Way of Will County provides Family Hygiene Kits with the intent to alleviate financial burdens and stress, reduce exposure to germs and disease, while positively affecting personal health and hygiene.

Family Hygiene Kits are distributed three times a year at Family Support Day Events in Crete, Bolingbrook, and Joliet. These events are promoted through the local school districts, to support families with school-aged children experiencing hardships.
