After the morning worship service on Sunday, December 11th, stay and participate in Project Give to help Mennonite Central Committee’s (MCC’s) development work globally and locally, as well as our Forest Heights Long Term Care neighbours. From assembling hygiene kits, to knotting quilts, to making Christmas cards and crafty gifts, we have something for all ages.
MCC urgently needs hygiene kits. Multiple situations of crisis around the world such as Syria, Iraq, and Ukraine have depleted their warehouse inventory. We are helping to replenish their supply so they can continue responding to needs around the world.
We need to collect enough health supplies for 150 kits so we need your help! Helping is as easy as 1-2-3. One, rip off a supply slip from the posters in the foyer. Two, buy your supplies. Three, show up on Sunday, Dec 11th with your supplies when we will assemble the hygiene kits to deliver to MCC.
Project GIVE is an annual event here at Westheights. We have chosen to do this due to our close relationship with MCC and the Forest Heights Long Term Care Centre.
We are asking you to contribute any one (or all!) of the following:
- 5 adult-size toothbrushes (in original packaging)
- 5 large bars of bath soap (leave in packaging)
- 5 fingernail clippers (good quality)
- 5 dark-coloured hand towels (larger than fingertip towels, approximately 38 cm x 64 cm/ 15 in x 25 in)
Thank you for your generosity and loving kindness.
