Donate PJs, make a day better
Personal Needs allowance in Texas for Medicaid Nursing Home Residents is only $60 per month. This covers haircuts, clothing, favored brand hygiene products, toiletry items, multivitamins, snacks, even birthday cards to send to family members. When a set of pajamas is $20, that is considered a luxury not a necessity. And transportation to a Walmart or drug store is cost prohibited.
