OUTREACH – hygiene kits for Church World Service

Church World Service Hygiene Kits

These little kits are jam-packed with supplies to help keep people clean and healthy. From toothbrushes to washcloths, you are making sure that someone’s needs are going to be met in the wake of an emergency when even the most basic supplies can be hard to come by.


-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 (found at discount dealers like sallybeauty.com)

-One fingernail or toenail clipper removed from the package (either one is acceptable)

-One bath size bar of soap in the original package

-One toothbrush in the original package-Ten standard size Band-Aids

Affordable wide-tooth combs can be found at discount suppliers such as sallybeauty.com. Search for “wide-tooth pastel comb” to see an example of combs that meet the kit requirements.

All items need to fit inside a one-gallon Ziploc type bag. Remove excess air from the bag and seal before boxing.

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.

HOW CAN YOU HELP? Our goal is to assemble 25 of these kits before the middle of May. We’d love your support either by purchasing the items for the bags, purchasing several of one or more of the items, or by donating to Outreach so we can do the shopping for you. Choices!

Please get donations to the church office, into the offering plate, or through PayPal. Items can be dropped off at any time during office hours.

We will deliver the kits to David Mallory at Hillyer Memorial.THANK YOU!
