Keeping clean is not a luxury, especially in a time of pandemic. When low income means a choice between buying food or paying the bills, items like shampoo and shower gel are the first to go. Yet hygiene is fundamental to us all, affecting our dignity, health and wellbeing and impacting on our life opportunities.
Help tackle hygiene poverty this Lent by donating the personal care items on BCM’s Lent Calendar day by day. We are particularly short of items for men.
You can print the calendar on A3, or use this 2-page A4 version if that is easier. Alternatively, we’d be very happy to send one or more printed copies in the post to you – just email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address and let us know what you would like.
After Easter, bring your collection to Birmingham City Mission’s Resource Centre and we will distribute them to those who come to us in need. THANK YOU.
Birmingham City Mission Resource Centre, The Clock Tower, 2 Langdon Street, Birmingham B9 4BP
Open Tuesday to Thursday from 10am to 3pm
