• ensuring that families with babies and children living with poverty have an adequate supply of diapers
• improving access to personal hygiene products and other basic necessities to remove barriers to education, employment, or personal fulfillment

• enhancing community understanding that access to basic personal hygiene is integral to physical and mental health, education, employability, and quality of life and to raise awareness that these needs are not being met for families living with poverty;
• advocating for policy reform so that diapers and period products are included in the definition of and provision for the basic human needs of families; and

🎁 It’s like Christmas in September here at the shop!
We have tables full of tools - drills, squares, tape measures, clamps, hand saws, PPE, and more, that we’ll be putting into tool kits that the kids can take home and start their very own tool collection! 🙌
They’ve been extremely limited with their at-home projects this summer due to only having access to a hammer and a screwdriver. But now they’ll be able to do so much more!
AND ...🥁... they’re going to be coming back into the shop on October 1!!! 🥳
We’re going to have a very limited number at a time, to assure social distancing and all safety measures taken, but they’ll each be able to come in to work on their projects and then have the tools at home to help with completion.
We are just. SO. excited!!!
