Help Required



You can help families, children, and our neighbors experiencing unhousedness meet their most basic needs and improve their health when you host a hygiene drive! A Hygiene drive is a GREAT way to collect supplies like toothpaste, soap, and socks, and help make sure that other people have access to these critical supplies for their health and wellness. Depending on where you live, you can either drop off the supplies back to Simply the Basics in San Francisco or to your closest Receiving Site!

What's Needed To Complete

Place to collect hygiene supplies Way to outreach (email or flyers)  Templates can be provided by Simply the Basics Must be able to deliver (or ship) to a Simply the Basics participating city.

How It Makes A Difference

Your help in collecting supplies means that we can help more people and continue to use our funds on the most needed and requested hygiene supplies for families. 

Where to Serve

From Home/Anywhere*


The next step would be to email Simply the Basics at or simply complete this online form so we can confirm where you will drop off supplies, which supplies you would like to collect, and provide you additional tips and tools like flyers and templates! Choose 3-4 hygiene supplies to collect Set a goal and timeline for yourself. (for example: "I have a goal to collect 50-60 toothbrushes and pairs of socks in 3 weeks" Decide how you would like to collect supplies (for example: Will you put a collection box at school, ask friends and family to drop off supplies at your house, or send an email and ask people to donate online) Email your group and/or put up flyers! Set-up collection bins, if necessary. Once everything is collected, the next step is Quality Control. Please ensure: Everything is new or unused. Each item is individually packaged. Discard any items that are used, expired, or spoiled. Sort by item type Once completed, admin@simplythebasics.orgemail Simply the Basics and let us know what you've collected and that you are ready to drop off!
