2021 Winter Clothing Drive
We kept it local for this event, sticking to Trenton and Camden, New Jersey. We successfully donated around 15 full garbage bags of clothes for those in need, including some blankets for the winter cold. This was a great way to end the year off, and we are excited for the new year!
Veterans Day Drop Off
Our Veterans Day Drop off Event went great! We dropped off toiletries: toothbrushes, toothpastes, feminine pads, deodorants, body washes, bars of soap, and washcloths. Everyone was very appreciative and we even met some veterans and thanked them for their service. Thanksgiving and Giving Tuesday is coming up, we have big plans so stay tuned!

Summer Drop off in Kensington, Philadelphia
Better Together had our August summer drop off in Kensington Philadelphia! We distributed almost 200 washcloths, soap (bars and liquid), toothbrushes, toothpastes, deodorants, feminine hygiene products, and water for the hot days. It was great being able to give people toiletries items that they desperately need, when they usually expect food items from soup kitchens/shelters. Great things coming for the fall!

Mother's Day Toiletries Drop off in Philadelphia
Better Together distributed over 100 complete toiletries package stocked with toothbrushes, toothpastes, deodorant, feminine products, lip balm, soap, wash cloths, hand sanitizers, gatorade, and snacks on Mother's Day Weekend!
We were excited to see how grateful our visitors were in receiving these products, but are saddened at the reminder that homeless and impoverished communities are desperate for basic hygiene products, not just food and water. Hygiene is a right, not a privilege. We are working to achieve that.
