|Hygiene poverty—the inability of an individual to secure basic hygiene products—is a significant concern that affects the finances, health, and well-being of Rhode Island residents who struggle economically.
In November 2022, TPA, located in North Kingstown, Rhode Island, made a financial contribution to Amenity Aid and organized a team of TPA volunteers who helped address the problem. Amenity Aid is a non-profit organization that serves vulnerable populations by improving access to essential hygiene items. TPA’s donation enabled Amenity Aid to purchase period products in bulk at a significant discount. The supplies were brought to TPA’s headquarters, where employees and three family members gathered on November 2 and bundled the hygiene products for Amenity Aid’s partners—people in need and non-profit organizations that serve those populations.
“We are very grateful to Amenity Aid for the important work it is doing to help solve this problem,” said Christopher Roy, President of TPA. He also expressed sincere thanks to the TPA employees who volunteered to bundle goods for residents. “We are committed to supporting our local community and pleased to have been of service,” he added.
