Having an Impact: Partner Spotlight

  •  Giving the Basics logo

    Giving the Basics provides the necessities of life, not covered by government assistance programs, that most people take for granted such as laundry soap, shampoo, deodorant, toilet paper and other personal care hygiene products. Products from Giving the Basics has an immediate impact on low-income families with small children, students, battered women, veterans, seniors, former prisoners and the mentally ill. The products help children attend school feeling fresh so they feel comfortable in the learning environment and they assure adults have the dignity they need so they can gain employment.


    HMC-1 has been receiving products for students since 2015. Giving the Basics helps district families get necessary products not covered by food stamps, such as shampoo and laundry soap and hygiene products. This service is so important because research has shown that basic needs must be met for children to learn.
