Local News

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – More than half of Shelby County students live near the federal poverty level and may not be able to afford hygiene and personal care products.

That’s why the Shelby County Education Foundation teamed up with UnitedHealthcare. Friday they dropped off thousands of personal care products, including shampoo, deodorant, and other hygiene products, at Kate Bond Middle School.

Officials say a lack of proper hygiene not only affects a student’s physical health but also their confidence and self-esteem. it can also lead to bullying and absenteeism.
