As Becca said in yesterday’s post, our annual Keepsacks for Kids project is coming up quickly. Now that we’ve started some of our new members (and brought back a few of our old ones) we’re gearing up for this awesome event. Since Becca explained the project already, I’ll just add our request for donations and help with hygiene kits.
Ideally, our hygiene kits will be specialized by age and sex. Our wish list for each hygiene kit includes shampoo/conditioner, liquid body wash, razors and shaving cream for adults, deodorant, hair brush/comb, lotion, face/body wipes, toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, mouthwash, wash cloth or hand towel, bandages, antibiotic ointment, cotton balls, tissues, pads and tampons for adult women, and hand sanitizer. Since donations and money are scarce, we know that we should have realistic expectations. Our most-needed items are listed in the graphic above, but we’ll happily accept any donations that come our way. We ask that items be unopened or unused, especially if they are hotel-sized travel items. Things that are individually packaged are best, but items in bulk that can’t be separated are always useful for large families or agencies that cater to many people.
We’d love for you to be a part in our Keepsacks for Kids project. On behalf of the hundreds of people who will receive a warm blanket and a hygiene kit this winter, THANK YOU!
