Calling for Hygiene kits at our March 5th Assembly:
When a flood, wildfire, or hurricane devastates a community, people scramble to deal with the chaos and to recover. They need practical help – fast.
Our congregations can make a difference by contributing items for hygiene kits. The Presbytery of Ohio Valley and Mid Kentucky Presbytery started packing disaster relief kits in 2016. Together with Western KY Presbytery we can reach our 2020 goal of 2,000 hygiene kits. Then, we’ll celebrate an impressive milestone: 10,000 hygiene kits in five years!
Each hygiene kit in a one-gallon zip lock bag includes:
- 1 hand towel – not microfiber
- 1 washcloth – not microfiber
- 1 wide tooth comb
- 1 nail clipper
- 1 bar of soap – unscented, bath size in wrapper
- 1 toothbrush – in original package (Toothpaste is not requested.)
- 10 Band-Aids
Please bring hygiene supplies to our next presbytery assembly on Thursday, March 5 at the Mitchell Presbyterian Church. Volunteers will deliver our hygiene kits and supplies to Fairlawn Presbyterian Church in Columbus. Fairlawn will take them to Louisville for packing and shipping.
Contact the Rev. Elizabeth Kirkpatrick at Fairlawn (812) 372-3882, firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
Thank you for caring for God’s people in need!
