Kits will contain a variety of Procter & Gamble personal care and hygiene products from brands including Always, Crest, Gillette, Old Spice, Pantene, Secret, Tampax, Tide, Dreft and Oral-B, as well as basic PPE including gloves and masks.

In an effort to best protect public health, recipients must remain in their vehicles while picking up supplies. Kits will be placed directly into the trunk of the vehicle in order to maintain social distancing.  Because supplies are limited, there will be a limit of two kits per vehicle.
