Personal hygiene is something that should not be taken for granted. Kaboodle Kits meet a very basic need for some area families and students. The Assistance League of Mid-Missouri provides a kit containing shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, comb, soap, and lip balm for each child who participates in Operation School Bell®. Additional kits are provided to school nurses of Columbia Public Schools to hand out during the school year. Kits are also provided to True North, the women’s shelter, and clients of the Voluntary Action Center. Kaboodle Kits have been distributed since 1993.
