University Congregational Church operates the Head-to-Toe Hygiene Pantry located at 2130 E. 21st St. North, Wichita, KS 67214.
The Head-to-Toe Hygiene Pantry is a ministry of UCC. Its mission is to provide basic personal hygiene items to persons with very low incomes. Items that are available for distribution include toilet paper, laundry detergent, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, diapers, baby wash, baby lotion, feminine hygiene items, deodorant, shaving cream and razors.
The Pantry is open the third Saturday of each month and serves 425-475 families each time.
We have volunteers from UCC working the Thursday before each opening date to help prepare items for distribution. In addition to volunteers from UCC, we are fortunate to have volunteers from across the community help at each opening.
We receive financial contributions in support of this mission from individuals, churches, and corporations. In addition to money, we also receive in-kind donations from the community for items to be distributed.
United Methodist Open Door Food Pantry gives us the use of part of their building at no coast and the Pantry is operated totally by volunteers.
