Basic hygiene products give hope to homeless in San Francisco

Imagine not being able to shower, brush your teeth or have menstrual products for days or even weeks. There’s an ongoing issue with the lack of hygiene products available to low-income communities and to individuals who call the streets of San Francisco their home.

Meghan Freebeck, founder and chief executive officer of Simply the Basics, is working to address this issue by providing hygiene kits to homeless people to fulfill their basic needs.
