In September, the Table will be working with our whole congregation to collect supplies to make relief kits. Church World Service will in turn ship those kits to places of disaster, war, and famine, like Japan, the Horn of Africa, and so on. You can help this project. Here is the ingredient list for a relief kit:
- One hand towel measuring approximately 16″ x 28″ (no fingertip or bath towels)
- One washcloth
- One wide-tooth comb
- One nail clipper
- One bar of soap (bath size in wrapper)
- One toothbrush (in original packaging)
- Six standard size Band-Aids®
The items all need to be non-perishable, so toothpaste is a no go. Be on the look out for good sales or extras of these items that you can donate to the cause. The Table will spend some time in worship one Sunday putting these items into the kit packages.
Our hands will make a difference in someone’s life.
Stay tuned for more updates about this fun project for September/October.
