Liz Duggan founded Amenity Aid after learning about an unmet need in homeless and women’s shelters. “I was overwhelmed knowing others lived without basics like soap and toothbrushes. I was motivated to find a solution,” she says. The East Greenwich resident founded the 100% volunteer run nonprofit in 2013, and has thus far donated 50,000 personal hygiene products to Rhode Islanders in need. Amenity Aid is the only organization in RI (and one of a few nationwide) solely focused on providing toiletries, which is not covered by state or federal programs. The charity will host a fundraiser on May 26th at the Hilton Garden Inn Warwick.
