Health & Hygiene Drive 2019

United Way of Alamance County is holding its 1st annual Health & Hygiene Drive to collect essential toiletries and other small items to help needy families, disconnected youth, victims of violence, seniors and the homeless meet their basic needs. The drive will be held annually in conjunction with United Way’s Day of Action on June 21, a massive annual volunteer initiative that takes place worldwide to improve lives and conditions in our communities.

The drive continues through the month of June. Drop-off locations will be added as businesses and agencies partner with us to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors. Personal care items can be dropped off at the following locations:

  • United Way of Alamance County, 220 E Front Street, Burlington
  • Impact Alamance, 133 E Davis Street, Burlington

  • Thomas Chandler Thomas & Hinshaw, LLP, 1007 S Main Street, Burlington
  • Burlington Municipal Building, 425 S Lexington Ave, Burlington
