Donate at the link below to show your support for Orcas Community Resource Center’s Coates’ Cabinet Hygiene Bank.
Orcas Community Resource Center established Coates’ Cabinet in 2019 to combat hygiene poverty and promote wellness. Each month, clients may choose an allotment of essential household and personal hygiene products from current inventory. For instance, we provide shampoo, conditioner and body wash so our clients don’t resort to using harsh dish soap for their bathing needs. We provide toothbrushes, toothpaste and floss as oral hygiene is a critical part of maintaining one’s health, particularly for children. We provide TP, tampons and pads, baby wipes and diapers as no one should have to suffer the humiliation of being soiled because they don’t have proper sanitary supplies. In short, we provide dignity for Islanders.
At its inception, 70 households were enrolled. We provided 1480 Coates’ Cabinet services last year. Let’s work together to keep our community healthy and safe. Thank you for your support, Orcas!
Now open on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month.
3:00-5:00pm ❖ July 6 and July 20 / August 3 and August 17
