How To Help
Poverty Impact Network is a 100% volunteer organization. Your contribution helps restore the health, dignity, and self-esteem of vulnerable populations by increasing access to essential hygiene products. We are grateful for your generosity!
Your support allows us to reduce hygiene poverty and improve health right here within Lincoln and Lancaster County. Monetary donations provide the most impact because of our ability to purchase in bulk at wholesale prices.
How your contributions can help:
A $75 donation provides 15 families a full-size hygiene kit
A $50 donation provides 16 people a 1-month supply of menstrual hygiene products
A $25 donation provides 125 twin-blade razors
A $10 donation provides 40 people with a quality toothbrush
Every donation, no matter the size, makes an impact.
Thank you for supporting Poverty Impact Network and our community!
