So many of the clients of The Center in Asbury Park struggle to make ends meet - to put some food on the table - to have some basic things that we can so easily take for granted. Each client is entitled to a monthly emergency "food bag" with some of the basics and a "hygiene bag" with items like deodorant, soap, toilet paper - things they are not able to get with food stamps.
Our pantry and hygiene shelves are kept full due to the generosity of many. Schools and places of worship hold food and hygiene drives, people travelling are in the habit of putting the hotel hygiene products in their suitcases for us, neighborhoods and clubs collect products for us.
Below is a list of the usual products that fill the pantry and hygiene bags.
