What Are Caring Cabinets?
The goal of the Caring Cabinet Network is to meet an unspoken, unmet need to provide essential household supplies to disadvantaged families, particularly women and children. We are a collaboration of the Girl Scouts of the Southern Appalachians Service Unit #608 and the Junior League of Johnson City, Tennessee.

With the support of local volunteers, we are creating a network of Caring Cabinets across our community to provide free essential household supplies, including feminine hygiene products. Our community needs us now more than ever. Today in Washington County, TN, 43% of households struggle to make ends meet. Our neighbors face unprecedented challenges in getting essential household supplies, including cleaning and feminine hygiene products.
We need your help to grow! Interested in hosting a Caring Cabinet? Want to help or get more information? We’re actively looking for prospective sites, hosts, and ideas from local Girl Scout and Junior League members, and members of the broader community. We are working with numerous local groups, the Washington County Health Department, city and county school districts to nominate sites based on demographic data.
