Collection Dates April 1-28
Assembly Dates April 29
Kindness Kits are bags that contain snacks, travel-size toiletries, socks, a bottle of water, grooming supplies, and other items that people who live on the street find useful. Bags are kept in your car, so when you encounter a person who is experiencing homelessness, you can offer the bag to them. Those who are interested are invited to take a few bags with them to keep on hand in their cars.
We will be assembling these kits (our goal is 250 kits) on April 29 from 8am till 12pm in the Narthex. Please feel free to stop by and put a bag or two together. We also need lots of items to place in the Kindness Kits (There is a drop-off box in the Narthex). Items needed are: large (1, 2 or 2.5 ) gallon Ziploc® bags bottles of waters, snacks (granola bars, protein bars, beef jerky, etc.), travel sized toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, hand sanitizer, deodorant, sunscreen, chapstick, etc.), wash clothes, combs, socks, hand warmers, small flashlights and batteries, and any other item that would bring comfort to the homeless.
Please use the tear off in the bulletin if you are interested in helping assemble or provide needed items or contact Stephany Rodvold, [email protected].
And one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? James 2:16 ESV
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. John 3:16-17 ESV
