Bring the Basics

basicslogoWe all need things like toothpaste, soap, and laundry detergent to stay healthy. But did you know that assistance programs like SNAP don’t cover personal hygiene or household cleaning products? That’s where Bring the Basics comes in. This collection drive provides cleaning products, personal hygiene items, and linens to individuals in the Shenandoah Valley who struggle to afford them.
