What a person can do today with assistance, they will do tomorrow by themselves.

placer pantry: healthy is having access to personal care needs

The Placer Pantry opened February 2012 in the Bargain Basement of the YWCA in Helena. In 2015, the pantry moved to Good Samaritan Thrift Store. That year we also began our partnership with the Soroptimist International Helena. The Placer Pantry provides individuals and families with free personal hygiene products and household cleaning products. This discreetly located pantry room at the Good Samaritan Ministries and Thrift Store gives those in need the privacy and dignity to “shop” for themselves once a month.
