A “Self-Care Cabinet” containing full-size hygiene items is now available for students. A cabinet has been set up at both Parke Heritage High School and Parke Heritage Middle School containing items that may be needed by students. Items offered in the cabinet include: deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, feminine hygiene products, and laundry detergent. The Hygiene Closet also partners with the Clothes Closet to purchase underwear and socks with monetary donations and to offer sweatpants for boys and girls at the elementary school.
One volunteer from each school gets in contact with a designated church member when items are needed. The church volunteer then delivers the needed items to the school. The church volunteers also check in periodically to try to make sure the cabinets are fully stocked before fall, winter and spring breaks so students can take items home, if needed.
Donations are accepted at the Rockville First United Methodist Church Monday - Thursday from 9am - 1pm. You may also message the church Facebook account.
