Church World Service Hygiene Kits

The Ministry of Missions invites you to take a Ziploc bag (or 2 or 3!) with the list inside.  Shop and fill the bag at your convenience.   Bags are available in the Narthex, now.  You can also download the shopping list here or contact the Church Office for more information.  You may also wish to make a cash donation toward this project by using the form below.  Please bring your completed bags back to church by November 14th

Here is what a kit includes:


All items need to fit inside a one-gallon zipper closure bag.  Remove the excess air from the bag and seal.
  • One hand towel measuring approximately 15”x 28” to 16”x 32” (no fingertip, bath, dish towel or micro-fiber)
  • One washcloth
  • One wide-tooth comb, removed from the package
  • One finger nail or toe nail clipper, removed from the package
  • One bath size bar of soap in the wrapper
  • One toothbrush in the package

Please do not add any extra items or toothpaste. A tube of extended expiration date toothpaste will be added to each Hygiene Kit just prior to its journey

  • Ten (10) standard size Band-aids

Do not enclose money inside the kits

Shipping for the kits to their final destination is expensive.  Costs include renting space on trucks, boats and planes, paying for gas, for the insurance of each shipment and for other delivery fees.  We ask that our donors help cover a small amount of this cost.  You can also use the giving form below to make a donation to this project.
