The Salvation Army Hawaiian & Pacific Islands today requested donations of hygiene products at their various corps and programs statewide to provide emergency disaster services for the COVID-19 outbreak in Hawaii.
The nonprofit said it was supporting vulnerable families that are struggling through financial hardship during the pandemic by providing food, emergency assistance, and other services.
Among the supplies the nonprofit is requesting are hand sanitizers, paper products, cleaning products, face masks, and other personal protective equipment. Monetary donations are also welcome.
“It’s imperative we build up our supplies of personal protective equipment and hygiene products as we continue to assist the ever-growing demand for services in our communities,” said Victor Leonardi, incident commander for The Salvation Army Hawaiian & Pacific Islands Division in a news release. “We also have an urgent need for monetary donations to help us secure food and supplies.”
