Church World Service Hygiene Kits

Because of all the natural disasters that occur around the world almost constantly, there is always a need for hygiene kits. CWS likes to keep a supply of them on hand so they can be ready to help at all times. The Mission Interpretation Committee has decided to collect items for these kits throughout the summer until the last Sunday in September. The following items are to be included in the kits:

-One hand towel measuring approximately 15”x28” to 16”x32” (no fingertip, bath, dish towel or micro-fiber)

-One wash cloth

-One wide-tooth comb removed from the package (found at discount dealers like sallybeauty.com)

-One fingernail or toenail clipper removed from the package (either one is acceptable)

-One bath size bar of soap in the original package

-One toothbrush in the original package

-Ten standard size Band-aids

Affordable wide-tooth combs can be found at discount suppliers such as sallybeauty.com. Search for “wide-tooth pastel comb” to see an example of combs that meet the kit requirements.

Please do not add any extra items or toothpaste as it has an expiration date. A tube of extended expiration date toothpaste will be added to each hygiene kit just prior to its journey.

You can bring in all the items for one kit or items individually. There will be boxes in the Narthex and Gathering Space for your donations.

As always, thank you for your continued generosity!
