St. Mary’s could not do what it does without the help of community partners. In the past year, one of those partners has made a difference for the children and families we serve: Amenity Aid. The nonprofit organization was founded by Liz Duggan in 2013.

As a business traveler, Liz donated hotel amenities to shelters. When she discovered the high demand for hygiene supplies, she created a one-of-kind solution to ensure those in need have access to basic toiletries.

Since its founding, Amenity Aid has donated more than 200,000 hygiene items and works with 21 direct service organizations in Rhode Island. The goal is to eliminate hygiene poverty in the Ocean State and Amenity Aid is doing it!
