Project to Support Global Links and Partners Personal Care Kits
In addition to providing surplus health supplies to poor communities in the Western Hemisphere, Global Links also supports local safety-net organizations serving vulnerable people. This year, Global Links has launched a "Personal Care Kits" project, with the goal being to secure the donation of 21,000 kits to give to local nonprofit social service safety net partners, including shelters, free clinics, child care centers, charitable and free clinics, and senior facilities. As the COVID pandemic continues, these essential health items are being provided to individuals and families struggling financially. Such items are not covered by SNAP and other government assistance programs, so they are often items that people must go without, yet are essential to their health and well-being.
