An off the wall topic, but while there are tons of food pantries, what does everyone think about someone creating a paper pantry? One that supplies things that food stamps dont buy, toothpaste, toilet paper, feminine products, etc.
I saw first hand how people appreciated a roll of toilet paper, many told me that they were tearing up newspaper and using that and how some women were rolling up pretty much whatever they could find when that time of the month came around--sad sad sad.
I have a lot of health issues now, but I do have this 'impossible dream' of creating a paper pantry in my community, its one of those things I think would benefit my community but I just dont know how to get it started as I am financially and psysically limited.
Some food pantries do give out occasional toilet paper, and even laundry soap, but not often enough. Toilet paper was the hottest commodity in the building!
thoughts and opinions?

Our food pantry in our town cover this stuff as well - they are always asking for donations of this type. I guess they are wise to what people really need ;o)
