ALNV members help pack toiletries for children in the NoVA region

About 30 Assistance League members gathered recently to pack 756 packages of toiletries in less than an hour and deliver them to six Title 1 schools in Fairfax and Prince William counties.  Upper-grade students received the packets in connection with their hygiene lessons.  Each package contained a washcloth and soap, toothbrush and toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, a comb and hairbrush.  The school counselors and nurses who provide the hygiene lessons greatly appreciate having the toiletries as they introduce products to students who might not know about using them correctly or as often as needed.  We have delivered a total of 950 kits this school year, including those provided to two schools last fall.  It is hoped that students who have these products for their hygiene class will develop a lifelong habit of good grooming.
