Boys and girls in the Y’s Teen Achievers Camp received a bag full of donated hygiene products.
The Y included some hygiene education in its Teen Achievers of Sulphur Springs’ Summer Experience Camp, a grant funded by Children’s Board of Hillsborough County.
“I wanted to do more than just educate and talk about it, I wanted to be able to give them the resources too,” says Nicole Ketterman, Healthy and Safe Children Director, Fit and Fun at the Y.
Nicole reached out to her friend and Y volunteer Brittany Lindsay asking her for some help. Brittany took the idea and ran with it. It became a community project very quickly and the response was amazing!
The Y ended up with 40 full drawstring bags of hygiene products tailored specially for the teens. Each bag contains full size products such as, body wash, lotion, deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, mouthwash, hairbrush, hair products, socks for the boys and feminine products for the girls.
The teens were very excited about their new bags. BayCare also assisted with the education the day the bags were distributed. Special thanks to our partners at BayCare and the Children’s Board of Hillsborough County.
