Personal Care Kits – Goal: 85 Kits

This season of Lent, our congregation’s journey can be the beginning of a better future for communities in need
around the world. We will be providing items for Personal Care Kits to help provide basic sanitat ion and hygiene
items for families coping with some of life’s most challenging situations. When Lutheran World Relief
distributes Personal Care Kits, it’s often to people who have lost everything. In the wake of an earthquake, or
having fled from violence as their homes were overtaken, they clasp a towel from a faraway place, with a bar of
soap, a toothbrush…and washing up, they know that they have not been forsaken by the world.
Each week of Lent, we will collect an item that we’ll use to assemble our kits. THANK YOU for taking part in
this ministry!
Here’s our collection schedule:
February 14: Bars of soap: (4-5 oz., any brand, in original wrapping)
February 21: Bath Towels (light-weight, maximum 52”x27”, dark color recommended)
February 28: Tooth brushes (adult size, in original packaging)
