Freshen Up

46239502_1587367124150670_r.jpegMy name is Aidan Wong, I am a 8th grader at Menlo School who would like to collect toiletries for shelters in our community 

During our shelter in place, I want to do something to help out families in our community that are vulnerable to the negative financial effects of the pandemic. Many shelters in the Bay Area are having difficulties keeping up with the demand for hygiene products (see below).  I  would like to start purchasing hygiene products to give to these shelters.  

My goal is to raise $5000 to donate to shelters in our community:

Please donate to help others during this crisis. Any amount of donation can make a difference and will be very much appreciated!
Below is a list of what we will be accepting


Soap (bar and liquid)
Toothpaste and toothbrushes
Body lotion and hand lotion
Lip balm/chapstick
Tampons and pads
Baby wipes
Hairbrush /comb
Hair ties
*All toiletries must be new and unopened. We accept travel-sized and full-sized items.

Remember hygiene products are necessities to everyday life.

We want to thank the neighbors and the following organizations for their generous donations:

Delores W. Eberhart, D.D.S
