Research has shown that 1 in 3 low-income American families struggles to afford basic non-food household goods --- including products related to personal care.
The BAG Lady Outreach toiletry lockers were created to provide further assistance and resources to students who are observed to be in regular need of items. Staff will notify BAG Lady Outreach when items are low and will be re-stocked at no cost to schools.
This initiative began at the Joliet Township HIgh School and was placed on hold due to E-Learning (a national response to COVID-19).
Now that students are back in schools, the BAG Lady Outreach Toiletry Lockers can be made available upon request and approval by the Board of Education for the school's location.
