Hope and Comfort was founded in 2011 by the Feingold family to teach their children, Kenny and Gracie, about the importance of giving back to the community. Our mission is to provide essential hygiene products to support and improve the health, self-esteem, and hygiene education of school-aged children and young adults in need within Greater Boston.

We give young people Hope Kits containing soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste and a toothbrush alongside education on how to use the products. We give food pantries thousands of items each month that they distribute to families in need, and we give hygiene products to a variety of other organizations such as homeless shelters too.
