How it Works

Assembling CWS Kits is an easy way to share your love with others and have a fun experience with your family and friends.


This is the fun part! Now its time to assemble the CWS Kits. Maybe you could even host a kit assembly party?


When you share a CWS Hygiene Kit, you show a tremendous amount of love and support to our neighbors around the world. CWS will share these kits on your behalf to communities in need.

“We gathered as a group to assemble CWS Cleanup Buckets filled with supplies needed to cleanup following a flood. It was such a great service project! I would encourage your group to also assemble these buckets. You will have fun, while making a difference.”
