Sonoma County Tourism Cares is pleased to partner with the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce, Petaluma Visitors Program, Rohnert Park Chamber of Commerce, and Sebastopol Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Center on a personal hygiene products donation drive.

Sonoma County is home to thousands of unhoused residents. For many, access to personal hygiene products is a continuous struggle, with procurement coming at the expense of other essential needs. From our discussions with Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Santa Rosa, we’ve learned that pads, tampons, panty liners, and individually wrapped wipes are items of particular need. That said, we welcome the donation of any type of hygiene product.

Throughout the month of November, we are encouraging our hospitality partners to donate new, unopened, hygiene products at a participating drop-off location during normal business hours. At the end of the month, the products will be donated to Catholic Charities for distribution to those in need.

Any assistance you can provide, from donating items, to helping promote this effort, is very much appreciated.

Questions can be directed to Devin McConnell at dmcconnell@sonomacounty.com.

Thank you.
