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 that provides access to proper hygiene through their mobile shower units, mobile hygiene pantry, and their happy bottoms project which covers bottoms ages 0 to 100+ plus with diapers, Depends and wipes while making sure dignity is observed. CareBag Inc. is powered by volunteers of all ages, that also 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 obtained. How do struggling families, our elderly get the personal items in this age of this unprecedented pandemic where your life does depend upon your hygiene. The health and Wellness of our community is 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.
Just since March 2020 our Happy Bottoms Project has distributed over 105,000 diapers, wipes and Depends, over 98,700 toiletries to families struggling and including our homeless packs. Our mobile shower units are in rotation at various sites for our “neighbors without walls” and our mobile hygiene pantry travels to various communities assisting our elderly unable to travel. We have distributed over 58,000 masks in 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.
