Upcoming Events

2018 Toiletries Drive benefiting YWCA’s Other Bank: April 16 – April 27th.

Let’s gear up for the annual YWCA Toiletries Drive.  The 2018 drive will begin on April 16th and will run through April 27th.   The Other Bank provides toiletries such as shampoo, toothpaste, toilet paper, diapers, and menstrual supplies to those in need, offering necessities of daily living such as dish soap, laundry detergent, and hand soap.  Products distributed by The Other Bank cannot be purchased with food stamps and are not available at food banks; yet they are essential for maintaining health and personal dignity. The Other Bank offers assistance to over 14,000 individuals every year. ICSEW will be collecting items at each represented agency to be donated on April 30, 2018. Start collecting now. More information on the Other Bank can be found here:http://www.ywcaofolympia.org/program/other-bank.

Please feel free to contact Michelle Jorgensen directly if you have questions about the drive at 360-236-3487 or Michelle.jorgensen@doh.wa.gov
