October 2017 Mission Project:

Hygiene Kits for Disaster Relief

Every Sunday in October, we are collecting items to assemble Hygiene Kits for Church World Service. From the CWS website, "In the face of natural disasters, violence, or grinding poverty, hygiene kits can mean the difference between sickness and health for struggling families." We will assemble the kits after church on Sunday, Oct 29th. One complete kit is estimated to cost $15.

A complete Hygiene Kit includes:

1 hand towel measuring approximately 15″ x 28″ to 16″ x 32″ (no fingertip, bath, dish towel or micro-fiber) 

1 washcloth

1 wide-tooth comb removed from the package

1 fingernail or toenail clipper removed from the package

1 bath-size bar of soap in the wrapper

1 toothbrush in the package

10 standard size Band-Aids
