Shower To The People
We’re happy to announce that our ”Shower To The People,” program is off and running, and that High Ridge Brands, the makers of Zest, Coast, Alberto VO5, White Rain and Rave, has launched our effort by donating and delivering pallets filled with thousands of bars of soap and bottles of shampoo and conditioner to 20 organizations across the country that serve the poor.
With the goal of providing 3 million “showers” by June 2014, High Ridge Brands joins our effort to help families in need put their best foot forward each and every day with dignity and pride.
“Shower To The People” is a way for donors to help an American family in need get regular access to much needed personal care items. Using our one-to-one family sponsorship model, the program provides basic items like soap and shampoo to some of our nation’s most poor and vulnerable.
With major food stamp (SNAP) cuts just going into effect, now more than ever struggling families need additional help to make it through the end of the month. With fewer SNAP dollars available, many families will be forced to use every last penny for groceries, turning personal hygiene products (never covered by food stamps), into hard to get luxury items.
Waste Not Want Not
As part of an effort to make giving easy and “out-of-the-box”, we’ve created “Calling All Realtors” – a simple way for real estate agents to help their buyers and sellers to “share their bounty” on moving day! Families cleaning out kitchen cupboards as they pack up to move can fill a shopping bag with unwanted nonperishable food items, hang it on their front doorknob, and their realtor will pick it up for a local food pantry. Simple giving.
Give the Gift of Giving!
Please join our efforts to make the holidays bright for families struggling to get by this winter season….the Family-to-Family way! Here are a few hands-on ways you and your family can help.
- STUFF A STOCKING for a child in need.
- Join F-to-F’s annual unwrapped TOY DRIVE and make it possible for a mom or dad in poverty to “shop” for just the right gift for their child.

Another option….let us do the shopping for you, by packing up and sending a “BOX OF HOLIDAY CHEER” to a family in need.
