Toiletry Drive for YWCA The Other Bank

  •  Each year ICSEW representatives coordinate a statewide workplace toiletries drive for personal hygiene products.  These products are necessary items that cannot be purchased with food benefits and are essential to maintaining optimal health and personal care. The Other Bank in Olympia provides free personal hygiene products to more than 20,000 local low-income individuals and families annually.  More than 95% of their hygiene products come from donors.  Please join us to coordinate this drive within your agency and make the 2015 drive an even bigger success.
