Giving the Basics provides the necessities of life, not covered by government assistance programs, that most people take for granted such as laundry soap, shampoo, deodorant, toilet paper and other personal care hygiene products. 

The products they provide impact low-income families with small children, students, battered women, veterans, seniors, former prisoners and the mentally ill.  Their products help children attend school feeling fresh so they feel comfortable in the learning environment and they assure adults have the dignity they need so they can gain employment.

Each year, Giving the Basics donates over 100,000 individual hygiene items to City Union Mission.  We are so grateful to have them as a partner and for their work in the Kansas City community!
