The Essentials Project

Students, we know that having the items you need to feel your best is not always a priority. Sometimes money is tight and having funds for soap and shampoo doesn't get top priority. To help people in need we have started The Essentials Project, a program offering free personal hygiene items to PHS students. Please use the form below to request items available on the list. All requests will be filled anonymously and delivered to a location of your choice. There is NO SHAME in needing a little help and we hope this helps boost your confidence and make focusing on school a priority.

If you have more questions, please contact a staff member below.

Our mission is to enhance a student’s life by providing basic hygiene necessities and removing the social stigma of poor hygiene that can often be an obstacle to success.
