Our vision is a country where all have access to proper hygiene, where communities see the importance of human rights for all.
CareBag Inc. is a 501C3 nonprofit organization founded in January 2017 that provides proper hygiene through various components. For example, the mobile shower units, operation center, and hygiene pantry cover ages 0 to 100+. We provide diapers, Depends, wipes, and much more while ensuring that dignity is observed. CareBag Inc. is power-driven by volunteers of all ages who live by the organization’s creed that proper hygiene is essential to those in need for better health and wellness in the community.
Just as we have food insecurities, we have hygiene insecurities. When families cannot afford a gallon of milk or a whole chicken to feed their families, how can they afford diapers, depends, or deodorant. It is inconceivable that even with government assistance, hygiene items cannot be attained. How do struggling families our elderly get the personal items in this age of this unprecedented times where your life depends on your hygiene. The health and wellness of our community are paramount CareBag Inc. serves the Treasure Coast and the West Palm Beach area; we have the best of the best and the worst of the worst. We have over 5000 school-age children enrolled as homeless in the areas we serve.
Since March 2020, our Happy Bottoms Project has distributed over 105,000 diapers, wipes and Depends, over 98,700 toiletries to families struggling, including our homeless packs. Our mobile shower units rotate at various sites for our “neighbors without walls,” and our mobile hygiene pantry travels to multiple communities assisting our elderly unable to travel. In addition, we have distributed over 58,000 masks of various types to individuals, hospitals, schools, and businesses as we all can do our part. Our mission is to support all in the health and wellness of our community and country.
