For the Girls - By the Girls - Drive to benefit Good Neighbors Day Shelter


The East Providence Girl Scouts are hosting a Personal Care and Feminine Care Products Drive to benefit Good Neighbors Day Shelter in East Providence. We know that the number of families in the United States needing assistance from food pantries continues to increase every year. But did you know that personal care and feminine care products are not covered by SNAP or any other welfare program? Every month, this leaves countless people without the products many of us take for granted. That is why the East Providence Girl Scouts are asking for your help by donating one or more of these products.

All donations of unopened trial size personal care items such as toothpaste, soap, shampoo, lotion, etc. are welcome. Feminine care products should be individually wrapped. We are asking for small sizes so that the items can travel easily in a backpack. All donations can be dropped off at the East Providence Scout House located at 351 Willett Ave in Riverside from now until Dec. 21st. There is a donation bin located near the front door. It will be emptied daily. You can also give your item(s) to a local Girl Scout. If you have any questions, please contact Elaine at 401-433-3166.
