Natural Dry Shampoo

We have options for those that are homeless or unable to wash their hair regularly with Dry Shampoo.10266320870?profile=RESIZE_180x180

We are working with groups/businesses in Oshawa to help create zero-waste products and services within our efforts. Working with individuals, through our Community Partners those in need can get refills for regularly used items, helping to reduce waste while helping the environment. This will help to reduce garbage within our community, these products used are returned for a refill rather than discarded. within the community or greatly reduces packaging. 

Through our activities not only are we helping to save a few dollars each month for individuals, but we are also actually creating an opportunity to reduce the amount of waste that is associated with Care Packages that many people distribute to those most in need. This allows the ability to do more with less, maximizing donations for all!

We have proven and seen a reduction of items taken by individuals in need with consistent & regular distribution events. We now work 1 on 1 with individuals in need knowing that they can get what they need before running out. Once connected with a LIFE Community Partner, a way of working 1 on 1 will create an opportunity to assist with items before they become desperate for needed items. This will also prevent the need to wait in long line-ups and will create opportunities for conversations and increased privacy. 

Working privately 1 on 1 will also help us seek out donations for various items that are not regularly part of our lists and to help with seeking clothing for the Online Free Clothing Initiative, focusing on needed items rather than just taking in large quantities and focusing on quality. 

You will find that we will post the latest items needed & updated weekly, when on the website you can select a category to see a full list of our needed item stock levels.

You can help make a difference, participate in our fundraising efforts, donate needed items, you can see what Stock Is Needed, or accept monetary donations. We do encourage you to participate in the fundraising efforts as all our fundraising also supports local small businesses.
