‘So many of us received toiletry gift sets over the festive period that maybe, we won’t get around to
using and if you are wondering what to do with them, my office is a designated drop off point for
The Hygiene Bank Ireland. They would be delighted to take them off your hands.’

Deputy Whitmore says,

“since November my constituency office on Hillside Road in Greystones has
been delighted to be involved with The Hygiene Bank Ireland as a drop off point for unwanted
hygiene and sanitary products. These products, through the network of the Hygiene Bank, then get
redistributed to people in our community who need them.”

“The Hygiene Bank Ireland is an initiative I can really support. Hygiene poverty
is a hidden form of poverty in Ireland affecting nearly 50% of the population, and yet no one seems
to know about it. Now with the cost of living crisis, hygiene poverty is even more prevalent. The
Hygiene Bank is a grass roots, community initiative that is growing rapidly as demand for their
services increase. They collect new, unused, in-date personal care and household cleaning
essentials.

If you are thinking of donating, everything is useful and the chances are, if it’s something you need
then there are others that need it too. It doesn’t need to be an unwanted gift set either, The Hygiene
Bank Ireland accept everything from shampoo, toothpaste, hygiene products, deodorant to laundry detergent to kids products.

If you have anything you’d like to donate you can bring them to my constituency office anytime
Monday to Thursday from 9.30 am to 1pm.” she concluded.
