Care Kits

Care Kit Items


Personal hygiene is one of the top needs for people struggling to obtain reliable sources of food, water and shelter. Heart to Heart Care Kits offer that first line of defense against the spread of illness, a first step toward good health... and they provide dignity in a small bag for those who have suffered during crises.

These are items that can be purchased at a local store and assembled anywhere.  Whether you're an individual, or part of a company, school, university, civic group, Scout troop, religious community -- any group -- you can assemble and fund Heart to Heart Care Kits.
