The Issue: Supplemental Assistance for Low-Income Families
Even when low-income families receive food stamps, many of them still struggle to afford critical non-food items such as toiletries. Madisonville Education and Assistance Center's Choice Food Pantry stocks hygiene items and cleaning products—as well as food—to better serve these families.
The Campaign: Providing Toiletries to Families in Need
If $35 people donate $10 to this Grassroots campaign, then the Madisonville Education and Assistance Center can provide hygiene items to 70 underserved families. Each additional $10 donation will provide these items to two more families. Hygiene kits include toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, razors, shampoo, deodorant, and other toiletries.

MEAC distributes donated food and clothing and offers rent and utility assistance to underserved members of the community. In 2011, MEAC served more than 3,900 families through its Choice Food Pantry, which provides cleaning products and toiletries in addition to food.
