Project Self-Esteem

Empower 7’s Project Self-Esteem is a year-round project that provides at-risk North Texas youth with personal hygiene kits so they feel confident and valued as a person.

Unfortunately, many of our communities’ most vulnerable individuals do not have access to the basic necessities that can help them look and feel their best. This makes it difficult for them to focus on their education and overall well-being—but you can help change that.

Donate Hygiene Items

We are collecting donations for hygiene items all year long. Find a drop-off location to bring your donations to. Each item donated will be lovingly packed into a hygiene kit that will be given to local youth in need.

Contact [email protected] for current drop-off locations!

Host a Box Drive

Host a box drive to collect donations for hygiene items at your church, organization, or business. Encourage people in your community to make a difference in the lives of at-risk teens who live in our neighborhoods, attend school with our children, and need our love and support.

Contact [email protected] to host a box drive!

Volunteer to Sort & Assemble Hygiene Kits

Join the Empower 7 Team that takes all of the collected items and sorts and assembles them into kits that can be donated to local teens in need.
