Sunscreen and Suds Pop-up Giveaway

Enjoy the summer while prioritizing your health, hygiene, and sun safety!

Join us for a pop-up giveaway at the McConnell Library in Sydney on Tuesday, June 25
from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. A selection of products, including sunscreen, soap, and
shampoo, will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please note that there will be a strict limit of two items per product for each attendee. This allows us to extend the opportunity to as many community members as possible. We are unable to reserve or hold products. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!

Hygiene poverty and hygiene insecurity are defined as an inability to afford basic
hygiene products, such as soap, shampoo, and other personal products. Hygiene
poverty can have life-long effects on a person’s self-worth and self-respect, and can
negatively impact their health. Access to hygiene products can help entire households
improve their quality of life.

CBRL recently received funding through the Urgent Food & Essentials fund. The
Department of Community Services provided funding to United Ways across Nova
Scotia for urgent food and essentials. United Way Cape Breton created a grant
opportunity with those funds that supported many local organizations. UWCB not only
oversaw the granting process but also answered questions and provided support to the
busy non-profit sector through the process – it couldn’t have been done without them!
We know many folks in our communities are struggling with insecurity of all types, and
this fund allows us to reach more folks who need help.

Stay tuned for more giveaway events at other CBRL branches this summer!
