Please do not enclose money or extra items inside of the kits.

All cleaning items must be new and all liquid items must be capped and securely tightened.

Fitting all of the items into the bucket can be a challenge.

  • Place the larger items into the bucket first, then add the smaller items.
  • Make sure everything is packed securely to avoid damage during shipment.
  • Snap the lid on tight and seal with packing tape.

A note about shipping...

Shipping of the kits from our warehouse to their final destination is expensive. Costs include renting space on trucks, boats and planes, paying for gas, for the insurance of each shipment and for other delivery fees. We ask that our donors help cover a small amount of this cost. You can cover these fees online here.
