WHAT'S GOING ON????
PDA Hygiene Kit Event
Highland Presbyterian Women are hosting a chance for folks to help with the refugee crisis in Europe, the wild fires in the western United States and crises as they arise all over the world. WE INVITE EVERYONE TO HELP by assembling hygiene kits needed by Church World Service (an organization of many churches and denominations around the world that come together to help others in need).
Any and all are invited to put together their own kits or buy some of the items listed below to combine with others for kits to be sent to PDA (Presbyterian Disaster Assistance) for use wherever they are needed.
It’s amazing what a difference the small things can make when you’ve lost everything.
And as we sit and watch with horror events unfolding with the refugees making their way to Europe, we are left to wonder what we can do to help. This is one thing we can do. And it does help.
Be a part of a Highland County witness of caring to the world by bringing your kit material to McDowell Presbyterian on Sunday, October 25 from 12.30 - 3.00 p.m.
Hygiene Kit items (the kit items are very specific)
1 hand towel (approximately 16" x 18" – no fingertip or bath towels)
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)
6 Band-aids or other adhesive strips
PLEASE do not add toothpaste. Toothpaste with an extended expiration date will be added to Hygiene Kit shipments just prior to shipment.
Seal all items in a one-gallon plastic bag with a zipper closure.
Feel free to put together your own kit or bring individual kit items to be put together with other donations at the church.
McDowell Presbyterian has a handicapped-accessible rest-room, a ramp for ease of entrance from the
gravel parking lot at the rear of the building, and large print bulletins and devotionals.
