Provide everyday essentials to those who are in need.
Throughout the year, ITAVFoundation provide care packages for those living in shelters, homeless youths & LGBTQ youth as well as low income families and those living in poverty stricken neighborhood. From our feminine care purse hygiene kit drive to our winter coat drive, we’re constantly finding ways to help our community and villages in need. Thanks to your generosity, we’re able to provide care packages to more than 300 people since 2016
I Care Packages includes but not limited to :
Feminine Hygiene products
For women in shelters, daily hygiene tasks can be challenging. Even though light essentials are provided in homeless centers and shelters, however items like tampons and pads are harder to come by.
Men Hygiene Products
Homelessness affects men more than women. At least 70% to 85% of all homeless are men. About 40% of homeless men are veterans. That’s why we also focus on providing men with basic hygiene products needed for everyday living.
Winter Coats, Shoe & Socks
During the winter, most families & homeless men and women are without winter coats, shoe or even sock to protect them from the harsh weather. For homeless people, frostbite is winter’s number one hazard. Many low-income families are struggling to pay their energy bill during the winter resulting in many homes being without heat or the proper attire to keep warm throughout the winter. From October to January ITAVFoundation collects winter coats, sweaters, shoe and socks for all ages.
Baby & Toddler Clothes and other essentials
Let's not forget the innocent babies and toddlers who are also victims of homelessness and poverty. Our goal is to help provide these innocent, sometimes invisible children with care packages containing diapers, wipes, clothing and baby food. Since 2016 we've collect gently used clothes (newborn-toddler), brand new formula for bottle fed babies and other essentials such a baby bottles, gently used crib/bassinet etc, for low income families and those who are homeless.
“1 billion children worldwide are living in poverty. According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty. Hunger is the #1 cause of death in the world, killing more than HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined.”
That’s why we make it our mission to help provide low-income families and those living in poverty with pantry baskets not just on Christmas or Thanksgiving but throughout the year. Each month we partner up with local vendors and organizations to help make sure families aren’t without food.
