The holidays are a time for giving and for spreading joy. But for many people who are experiencing homelessness, the holidays can be a difficult time. In the heart of California, we organized a joyful Holiday Hygiene Kit Build event for BioMarin's company holiday party, donating kits to the Downtown Streets Team (DST), supporting those experiencing homelessness.

The event centered around crafting hygiene kits filled with essential items like toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, conditioner, soap, deodorant, and more. These care packages, assembled with love, were destined to bring a touch of joy and essential care to DST members during the holiday season.

Volunteers at the Holiday Hygiene Kit Build event enjoyed not just a volunteering experience but:

  • Made a meaningful contribution by providing hygiene essentials to those without a place to call home.
  • Supported the remarkable efforts of Downtown Streets Team, a local nonprofit spreading positive change in the community.
  • Bonded with their team, cultivating a spirit of togetherness.
  • Discovered the impactful work of the Downtown Streets Team and the joy that comes with giving back.
  • Celebrated compassion and community with their colleagues.

BioMarin's holiday party saw the energetic collaboration of 22 volunteers, resulting in the creation of 200 hygiene kits! These festive care packages have been sent off to the Downtown Streets Team, ready to be shared with individuals experiencing homelessness or at risk.

The Holiday Hygiene Kit Build event showcases the magic when a community comes together with purpose and positivity. BioMarin employees not only brightened the holidays for others but also fostered a sense of shared joy and warmth.

Join us in spreading cheer through volunteer events in your community. Together, let's continue creating uplifting moments and bringing happiness to those who need it most.
