Hurricane Response: CWS Kit Collection Sites

Read our Emergency Appeal here.

We’re processing shipments for tens of thousands of CWS Hygiene Kits and Emergency Cleanup Buckets for areas affected by Hurricanes Irma, Maria and Harvey. So far, well over 100,000 of these packs of vital cleaning and personal care supplies are on their way to affected areas.

Here are the locations and details of collection sites where you can drop off kits. Please read the information about your local collection site thoroughly before beginning to assemble or drop off kits!

If you don’t see one near you, consider making a monetary donation instead to help cover shipping costs and support for long-term recovery in the wake of the storms.
