This year the Presbyterian Women will only be collecting Hygiene Kits for Church World Service.
Here is what you will need:
One hand towel measuring approximately 15 x 28 inches to 16 x 32 inches(no fingertip, bath, dish towel or micro-fiber)
One wide-tooth comb removed from the package
One fingernail or toenail clipper removed from the package
One bath-size bar of soap in the wrapper
One toothbrush in the package
Ten standard size Band-Aids
All items need to fit inside a one-gallon plastic zipper closure bag. Remove the excess air from the bag and seal before boxing. Do NOT add any extra items or toothpaste. A tube of extended expiration date toothpaste will be added to each hygiene kit just prior to its final journey.
Kits are due to the church on September 29.
They will be delivered on October 1.
Last year Church World Service sent 26,700 Hygiene Kits to Syria, 180 Hygiene Kits to the Dominican Republic, and 7,800 Hygiene Kits to Venezuela. Thank you for helping make a practical difference in the lives of people around the world.
