The Educational Enrichment Foundation, with the help of the 2019 Class of Tucson Greater Leadership (GTL), will be opening a Hygiene Pantry at 3809 E. Third. St., Tucson, AZ.
The pantry’s focus serves several purposes: Providing TUSD students and families the supplies they need, removing barriers for school attendance, and boosting student confidence to be ready to learn and removing TUSD educators and school staff out of pocket expenses.
These staff members currently stock a cupboard, shelf or a cabinet with hygiene items to supply student needs throughout the district. According to national studies, lack of hygiene items can lead to health issues, absenteeism, bullying and/or lack of self-confidence.
Financial support for EEF's Hygiene Pantry can be donated at www.hygienepantry.com. Hygiene products are being collected at the Tucson Metro Chamber (ask for GTL’s office), 465 W. St. Mary’s Rd., Tucson, AZ 85701. Hours of Operation: 8 AM to 5 PM
