Essentially Basic
Hygiene and Household Care Pantry

is a ministry devoted to the free distribution of basic hygiene products and household care products to those who cannot
purchase them regularly.

Due to the COVID pandemic we are currently partnering with area food pantries in an effort to get hygiene and household care products to those in need.  If you need help with these items contact the St. Vincent DePaul or St. James Food Pantry in Danville; the Multi Agency in Hoopeston; or the Oakwood Food Pantry in Oakwood. 

Why a Hygiene and Household Care Pantry?

WHAT DOES THE PANTRY OFFER?

GET IN TOUCH

Cleanliness generates pride in oneself, higher levels of self-esteem, personal comfort, and dignity. Personal cleanliness is crucial to decreasing the spread of germs and preventing illnesses. When people in the community strive to improve hygiene practices, many health problems are decreased and even eliminated. In turn, health costs are reduced. 

Thousands in the county struggle to observe good hygiene practices because they cannot regularly afford the basic, non-food household goods related to personal care and household care. They are not only in economic poverty but are also in “hygiene poverty.”

Just as food pantries are a great need in Vermilion County so is the need for basic personal care and household care products.

The pantry offers basic personal-care items and household cleaning products.

  • Shampoo

  • Body Wash

  • Toothpaste/Toothbrushes

  • Deodorant

  • Feminine Products

  • Dish Soap

  • Hand Soap

  • Laundry Soap

  • Bathroom Cleaner

  • Bleach & Disinfectant Cleaners

The pantry is available to anyone in need in Vermilion County.

The Dwelling Place seeks and welcomes community  partnerships with churches, civic organizations, and  businesses throughout the county.


Donations of products are greatly appreciated.
