Homeless Hygiene Corp.™ By: Michael, Brendan, Justin and Sean

Our mission is to provide cleanliness to the homeless people all across america. So that they can have better health and job opportunities. Providing opportunity for their future.

The problem with being in poverty or homeless is that most people cannot pay for cleanliness because they have more important things to pay for. Over half a million people are homeless in the U.S. and the majority of these homeless people don't have access to basic things like Toothbrush, deodorant, soap, hand sanitizer, toothpaste, wet wipes, diapers, razors, shaving cream, tampons, hand towels, Kleenex, cough drops

This problem needs more attention because everyone always focuses on the things like food water, clothing and other things, now although these are very critical to life it is important for homeless people to be clean and healthy. For example if a group of homeless people are not clean they can spread sickness much easier because they are being exposed to more bacteria and viruses. It is also important because it is a fact that many homeless people can not afford rent so if they cant afford rent that means they can not afford basic things like hygiene products which is where we come in.

Our plan to solve this problem is to partner up with food pantries and ask various food pantries around the country if we can use there food pantries and there space to distribute our cleanliness products. By using food pantries that are already in place it cuts down costs and it gives us place where homeless people already go and trust so that we can get our cleanliness products to more of the homeless population. Food pantries provide 3,000,000 mels a year for people in America that is a lot of opportunity to distribute hygiene products to the homeless.
