Obtaining basic essential items like toilet paper and shampoo can be difficult for mobility-challenged, housebound, and low-income seniors. The Heart of Ida solicits, merchandises, and houses donations of essential basic needs items, including personal hygiene products, paper goods, cleaning supplies, warm weather gear, pet food, COVID tests, and more, in our Essential Needs Pantry. Homebound seniors can request delivery of specific items, while seniors who are able can shop for these free essentials in person at the Essential Needs Pantry in The Heart of Ida’s office space at the Long Beach Senior Center. Available items include:

  • Soap, Shampoo, and Body Lotion
  • Adult Diapers
  • Toilet Paper
  • Pet Food
  • Dish Soap and Laundry Detergent
  • Blankets, Socks, and Scarves
  • COVID Tests and PPE
  • And More
