For many right here in our community, hygiene is a luxury.
Hygiene poverty is not being able to afford many of the everyday products like soap, laundry detergent and toothpaste most of us take for granted. Many just do without.
RED CART PROGRAM
The Red Cart Program addresses increasing period poverty and is a collaboration between The Kindness Closet, United Way and Well Equipped Period to put period products in the bathrooms at local schools.
CLoset inside Mooresville Christian Mission
The original Kindness Closet has moved and is now located inside the Christian Mission at 266 N. Broad Street in Downtown Mooresville, NC. The Mission serves an average of 35 clients a day. Each of the clients will be able to choose their own household and hygiene items when they grocery shop at the Food Pantry. You can soon sign up to help keep this busy location stocked!
CLoset at Health REach Clinic
The Mooresville Kindness Closet is excited to launch a new shelf ‘closet’ inside HealthReach Community Clinic for its patients.

You can help keep this shelf stocked by signing up below.
