3rd Annual Community Hygiene Kit Drive


What’s a hygiene kit?

It’s a simple baggie filled with a few essentials for those in an emergency who are without shelter.

Why do this? Fires ravage our western states

and we can’t do a thing from here –

or can we?

People are flooded out of their homes, losing everything and we’re watching from a safe distance doing nothing – or are we? Refugees around the world are on our television screens every evening needing help and we’re helpless to do anything for them – or are we?

             We can help make a difference right now!

Bring your kit (in a gallon-size ziplock bag) fully assembled or buy items to go into a kit and drop them off at the church (table set up in the sanctuary)
any time before assembly day (Sat., Oct. 28) or come on the day and help put the kits together - it’s a great way for the kids to have hands-on experience helping others!

Kit List of Items:
1 hand towel (approximately 16" x 18")

1 wash cloth
1 wide-tooth comb

1 nail clipper (no metal files or emery boards)
1 bar of soap (in original packaging)

1 toothbrush (in original packaging)
10 Band-aids or other adhesive strips

Please do not add toothpaste.

You can make your own entire kits -  or buy some items to be put together with other donations.
