Disaster Response: collection for Hygiene kits

During the month of September you are invited to bring items to help us create hygiene kits for Presbyterian Disaster Assistance. These kits offer a way to reach disaster survivors and those in need with the hope of Christ. As parents help children process images of the devastation from Hurricane Harvey, purchasing and offering these gifts can be a tangible way for children to put their faith and empathy into action. Children will be assembling these items into gallon-size Ziplock bags during Sunday School.

You may bring any quantity of any of these items over the month.   Collection bins will be available at the 1) Children’s Hospitality desk, 2) Main Church Hospitality Center, 3) Courtenay Hall, and at the 4) top of the OHS C-Wing hallway.

hand towels (approximately 16” x 28”, no finger tip or bath towels)

wide-tooth combs (not regular combs)
nail clippers
bars of soap (bath size in wrapper)

Please do not donate toothpaste for the Hygiene Kits. Toothpaste which has an extended expiration date will be added to international Hygiene Kit shipments just prior to shipment.
