AGAWAM, Mass. (WWLP) – The Employers Association of the NorthEast picked up hundreds of personal care products Monday morning that will be donated to people in need.

The EANE is teaming up with the Mental Health Association to support the Good to Go program.

According to a news release sent to 22News, the Good To Go program is a special initiative of MHA that provides basic personal care items to hundreds of people served by MHA.

The following items have been collected over the past month by the MHA and were donated to those in need:

  • Toothbrushes/toothpaste
  • Soap/body wash
  • Shampoo/Conditioner
  • Razors/shaving cream
  • Sheets/towels
  • Moisturizer
  • Deodorant
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Socks

“This year, more than ever, we recognize the importance of giving back to our community,” said Allison Ebner, Director of Member Relations & Partnerships for EANE.

Allison Ebner, one of the people behind the event, told 22News, it’s important to give back to the community, even if you never meet the person in need, “The act of giving, too, is something our staff appreciated the opportunity to do that for others. Sometimes, giving to someone you’re not actually meeting is just a way to bring happiness and joy to someone in the community.”

Both organizations have been working together all year to help those impacted by COVID-19.
