Somerset Student Council & Somerset PTSA Present: 

Somerset Springs Into Service

Student Council Hygiene Drive

From March 20 – March 31, the Somerset Elementary Student Council, in partnership with the Somerset PTSA, will be organizing a hygiene drive to help young community members who desperately need these essential supplies.  All donations will go to KidVantage (formerly Eastside Baby Corner), an Eastside organization that works to provide everything a kid needs to thrive – clothes, toys, books, shoes and even hygiene items! All teachers' classrooms will have bags to collect donated hygiene items.  Please note, we can only accept new and unopened products, items must be appropriate for kids ages 0 to 12yrs old.

To ensure that we gather enough of each needed hygiene item to create kits for dispersal, we’ve categorized the donation type by grade level:

  • Kindergarten: Travel-size toothpaste, travel-size kids toothpaste, toothbrushes

  • 1st grade: Travel-size shampoo/conditioner, travel-size baby shampoo/body wash

  • 2nd grade: Travel-size moisturizer/lotion, travel-size baby moisturizer/lotion
  • 3rd grade: Combs, brushes, hair ties & accessories, floss
  • 4th grade: Deodorant, travel-size hand sanitizer
  • 5th grade: Washcloths/face cloths, bar soap
  • All grades & teachers: 4T, 5T, or 6T Pull-ups & wipes (opened diaper packages is fine, wipes need to be new/unopened)

Thanks so much for your generosity!


PTSA Family Project

Join us for an afternoon of community service on Saturday April 1 from 3:30 to 5:30pm. We will assemble the items collected by the Student Council into individual hygiene kits for children ages birth to 12 years old.  All toiletry kits will be donated to KidVantage (formerly Eastside Baby Corner) for distribution. KidVantage helps kids reach their full potential tomorrow by meeting their basic needs today.

Family members of all ages are invited - siblings welcome! Children must be accompanied by at least 1 adult. Note: Space is limited, families must sign-up via this link - please include the number of people attending in your group.

Please email with questions. Thank you for giving back to our community!
