This 15-Year-Old Girl Is Giving Away Free Sanitation Kits To The Homeless

During a crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic, we all have a role to play. Some of us need to stay in our homes (easier said than done) and some of us need to head into medical centers or work other important jobs that keep us alive, fed, and out of danger.

And then there are the teenagers. Are they playing video games and fighting about homeschooling? Probably. That’s fair—their whole lives have been turned upside down. But they’re also helping in really crucial ways. For example, 15-year-old Shaivi Shah is helping by making sanitation kits for homeless populations around Los Angeles.

Shah and her fellow honor society students at Tesoro High School are giving away more than 250 low-cost sanitation kits to homeless shelters. Each kit contains hand sanitizer, lotion, antibacterial soap, and handmade reusable face masks to help those experiencing homelessness stay safe during the pandemic.

“They don’t have necessities right now that are crucial to remain clean and stay germ-free,” Shaivi told CNN. “It’s important for people to step in and just do whatever they can, even if it helps just one person.”

Shaivi says she was inspired to take on this labor of love after hearing Gov. Gavin Newsom’s recent speech on California’s homelessness crisis.

Shaivi has since launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise additional funds for expanding her initiative outside of Los Angeles—and the page has already raised more than $13,000.
