Pure Hope Pantry
We all have to make choices.
For individuals and families experiencing financial hardship, these decisions can be painfully stark. When faced with how to spend their limited resources, most will choose a meal at the expense of personal care.
Struggling to afford the cost to maintain a basic level of hygiene, these individuals suffer the loss of confidence and prospects; avoiding interviews, work opportunities, classroom time, and social situations. One person at a time, we strive to restore dignity and distribute aid.
Distributing Dignity One Person at a Time
** OPEN TUESDAYS FROM 7-8 PM **
Because of our conviction that basic hygiene is a necessity and not a luxury, Pure Hope welcomes all those in need to contact us via phone or email to request products at any time. We serve individuals, families, and other non-profit organizations.
We are open to partnerships with local businesses and other like-minded non-profits. Corporate donors will be featured on our future "Partners" page as well as other printed and media publications.
Pure Hope Hygiene Pantry is a community outreach of Mountainview Christian Center of Idaho Falls.
We are an Idaho Falls REALITY...
Bonneville County boasts a myriad of assistance and services for a variety of needs; from food pantries, to clothing giveaways, to shelters. While many of these locations may be able to offer small hygiene packets, resources are slim and these care packs often only last 1 to 3 days. Pure Hope Pantry recognizes the need to create an outpost where individuals and families can come to receive regular full-size bath and feminine care products.
Unfortunately, most federal assistance programs, such as EBT, do not pay for soap, shampoo, shaving products, or feminine hygiene. Because of this, members of our community do not feel confident going to school, interviews, work, or social events because neither they nor their clothing feels clean.
Hygiene poverty exists. Help us to eliminate this issue.
