Mission Project: Hygiene Kits

During each Lenten season, the Sunday School classes organize a mission project. This year we will be collecting materials to be included in Hygiene Kits that UMCOR distributes in areas hit by natural disasters.  This past year has seen an increase in the number of places UMCOR has helped, thus diminishing the supply of Hygiene Kits. We will be collecting the following supplies to be included in individual Kits, which will be assembled in April, immediately after Easter. Collection boxes will be placed in the entrances of the church.  Please help make this Lenten Mission Project a success. 
   All items must be new:

  • 1 Hand towel: 15x25 in. to 17x27 in. (Kitchen, cleaning, and microfiber towels not acceptable)

  • 1 Washcloth

  • 1 Toothbrush (Adult size only. Do not remove from original packaging)

  • 1 Bath-size soap (3 oz. and larger sizes only. No Ivory or Jergens soap due to moisture content. Do not remove from original packaging)

  • 1 Comb (Comb needs to be sturdy and longer than 6 inches long. No pocket combs or picks, please.  Rattail combs and combs without handle are acceptable with a minimum of 6 inches of teeth)

  • 1 Metal nail file or nail clipper (No emery boards, please)

  • $1.00 to purchase toothpaste
