The YWCA GRIT Center serves many teens in the St. Joseph area.  We are in need of basic hygiene items for teen girls and boys. We talk with our teen program participants about the importance self care and making a good first impression. Unfortunately, we find that many of our teens do not have access to basic hygiene items, making it difficult for them to feel confident and put their best foot forward.

Items that we need include:

  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Soap/body wash
  • Deoderent
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrushes
  • Shaving cream

Additional info: All sizes can be used, but full sizes are preferred. We are in need of products for both teen girls and boys.
