Why a Hygiene and Household Care Pantry?



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.
