Make Hygiene Kits for Disabled Veterans

The Disabled Veterans National Foundation (DVNF) provides critically needed support to disabled and at-risk veterans who leave the military wounded—physically or psychologically—after defending our safety and our freedom. The Disabled Veterans National Foundation (DVNF) is looking for volunteers to give back to the Veteran Community and assemble hygiene kits to distribute across the country!

These hygiene kits are called Comfort Kits and they provide vital necessities such as health and hygiene items, clothing, and more to veterans of all walks of life. The contents of our Comfort Kits typically include quality and full-sized items such as shampoo/conditioner, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, razors, deodorant, a t-shirt, a pair of socks, sunscreen, Band-Aids, etc.

DVNF has also recently created our own signature Women’s Comfort Kits for our too often overlooked female veterans. Our Women’s Comfort Kits always include feminine hygiene items which can be very difficult and expensive for low-income women to obtain.

The Health and Comfort program takes the most manpower. Without volunteers, it’s impossible for a small nonprofit to serve our Veterans as optimally as we can.  We can only do it with the help of individuals willing to give their time to this worthy cause.
