I am in charge of a brand new clinic at a new school. I need free samples to hand out, things like deodorant for students and pads for the girls. I was lucky enough to get a bunch of mouth wax from a local orthodontist but I need other things. I've already spent enough out of pocket on clinic items. I'd also like some free pamphlets on various topics for students & staff- skin conditions, cardiac, diet & exercise, etc. Does anyone know of any organizations or companies who mail out these to school nurses?

I realize I could pick companies at random and call (in my "free" time - ha!) but I thought some of you might already know of companies.

Thanks!!!

Here is the Procoter/Gamble website info. I order all our puberty supplies from them. Puberty Education - P&G School Programs

You need to order pretty soon as they ship out on a first come first serve and will run out if you order too late. They have stuff for both boys and girls.

P and G doesn't send samples for the boys anymore--at least they didn't to my area. The girls still get samples and a deodorant and the boys get a booklet. The classroom teachers and I thought it was unfair but didn't want to quit getting the girl's stuff. The program is supposed to be in conjunction with puberty education. I don't think there's much in the way of "free" anymore.

Contact your local philanthropy groups - women's hospital auxilary, AAUW, Rotary, etc and your local for-profit hospitals, to give you a grant. Check your PTA's mini fund.

Thanks for the info and ideas! I'd really like some posters for bulletin boards. I know I've seen them at county health departments and doctor's offices. Various CPR, "cover your cough", eat healthy/food pyramid kinds of posters. I'm sure they are free, I just don't what orgs to contact. Anybody know?

CDC, American Diabetes Association, Virginia Dept of Health (would be your state's though)... etc. There is also a poster you can get from Dr. Itchy regarding lice awareness at dritchy.com (google dr itchy). Hope this helps !
