Pinchapoo brings care packs to emergency departments

March 25, 2021

With the support of VHA partner Bank First, Pinchapoo is launching a new product for emergency departments.

‘Pinchapoo Emergency Personal Hygiene Care Packs Program’ provide culturally appropriate, gender inclusive hygiene packs that can be distributed to those presenting to emergency departments in crisis, homeless and at risk, victims of family violence, isolated and experiencing struggle. These packs will aid in physical and mental rehabilitation and act as a positive engagement tool for the hostile and complex arrivals.

Pinchapoo (slang for Pinch-a-shampoo) is proudly responsible for creating a cheeky hotel toiletry ‘pinching’ movement 12 years ago… and for good reason! Using this world first, modern day Robin Hood concept together with landfill stock rescue programs, they redistribute more than 8.5 MILLION personal hygiene products to hundreds of thousands of disadvantaged men, women and children nationally each year.

Pinchapoo is the biggest national not-for-profit supplier of personal hygiene essentials and works with over 600 + leading organisations, community groups and government institutions as a total hygiene solution, providing access for EVERYBODY in EVERY situation of need and tackling hygiene poverty head on.

Alex Erzeren, National Promotions and Programs Manager will be in contact with Victorian emergency department in the coming weeks! If you have any questions, please contact alex@pinchapoo.org.au or call 0434206700
