Mennonite Central Committee urgently needs 5,000 hygiene kits, and Westheights Church is helping to meet some of that need. This Sunday, tear of a supply slip from the posters in the foyer, then show up on Sunday, Dec 16th with your supplies. While we originally hoped to collect enough supplies for 100 kits, we challenge our Westheights community to go above and beyond, as you’ve always done, and donate supplies for 150 kits!
On Dec 16th we will assemble the kits to deliver to MCC. Project GIVE is an annual event here at Westheights. We have chosen to do this rather than the Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes in recent years due to our close relationship with MCC.
We are asking you to contribute any one (or all!) of the following:
- 5 squeeze-top toothpaste (minimum 130 ml/7 oz; leave in box)
- 5 large bars of bath soap (leave in packaging)
- 5 fingernail clippers (good quality, not from dollar store)
- 5 dark-coloured hand towels (larger than fingertip towels)
Thank you for your generosity and loving kindness.
