Help us serve even more kids in our community!
Proper hygiene is important for a child's health and self-esteem. At Refresh Frisco, our mission is to ensure that every child in our community has access to personal hygiene items. We can only accomplish this mission with the help of our community. Please consider donating so we may be able to supply a quarterly Refresh Pack of hygiene items to every child in need in Frisco ISD. Thank you for helping us make a difference in the lives of many Frisco kids!
Our organization connects with students in need through the Frisco ISD school staff and administration. Quarterly, we deliver customized Refresh Packs to Frisco ISD schools that include essential hygiene products to last each child for 3 months. Our care packages are discreetly distributed to the students and the student's identity is protected and confidential.
Our Refresh Packs are tailored to the child's age, gender preference and ethnicity. A basic pack includes toothpaste, toothbrush, floss, shampoo, conditioner, body wash/bar soap, lip balm, comb/brush, and lotion. Packages for those in middle and high school also include shaving cream, deodorant, and feminine products. Each pack includes a handwritten note of encouragement.
Good hygiene promotes better health and prevents illness, infections, and rashes from spreading. Good personal hygiene increases self-confidence and helps children to feel good about themselves and their appearance. Lack of self esteem, especially during the teenage years, can negatively impact a student's performance in school as well as their ability to form meaningful relationships and friendships.
Frisco ISD is among the fastest growing school districts in the nation. Although Frisco is widely seen as an affluent community, situations such as job loss, death, divorce, medical issues contribute to the numbers of those in financial crisis on the rise in our community. As of October 2021 of the students enrolled in FISD, 13% (over 8,500 students) are economically disadvantaged. Hygiene items are NOT covered under government assistance programs such as SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), making the need for these items even greater.
To be eligible to receive our Refresh Packs, your child must meet both criteria listed below:
*Attend a Frisco ISD school . We also serve the Leadership Prep School in Frisco.
*Qualify for FISD's Free and Reduced Price Meal program.
If you meet the eligibility requirements above, click here to enroll for the 2022/23 school year.
Refresh Frisco provides children enrolled in our program with customized Refresh Packs that include full-size essential hygiene products to last for 3 months. Once your child is enrolled, they are enrolled for the remainder of the school year.
Our Refresh Packs are tailored to your child's age, gender preference and ethnicity. A basic pack includes toothpaste, toothbrush, floss, shampoo, conditioner, body wash/bar soap, lip balm, comb/brush, and lotion. Packs for those in middle and high school will also include shaving cream, deodorant, and feminine products for females. Based on the season, additional items such as hand sanitizer or sunscreen may also be provided. Each pack includes a Refresh Card, a handwritten note of encouragement.
Our Refresh Packs are delivered once a quarter. Our distributions are typically in August, November, February, and May. Once enrolled, you will receive several emails before each distribution with details on when and where packs will be distributed. Our packs will be available for pick up through drive-thru distributions or will be delivered to schools.
