Hygiene Kits for Earthquake Zones

Westminster Presbyterian is committed to helping others in our community as well as globally. Currently, Westminster Presbyterian Outreach Committee is heading up a program to assist families in Haiti and Chili after the recent devastating earthquakes. The project consists of putting together hygiene kits. We would like to participate in this activity and help teach our children the importance of helping others in times of need.

Hygiene Kits should be packed into 1-gallon ziplock bags and contain:

  • 1 hand towel 16”x28”
  • 1 washcloth
  • 1 wide-tooth comb
  • 1 nail clipper
  • 1 bar of soap in wrapper
  • 1 toothbrush in original package
  • 6 Band-aids
  • Please do not add toothpaste.

If you would like to fill a bag or two, please do so and drop it by the office. We’ll also accept donations of bulk amounts of any of the items.

On Wednesday, April 21, Westminster is sponsoring a build-a-hygiene-kit activity where children can help pack the donated items into bags. There will be a dinner from 5:45-6:30, followed by kit building.

The cost of the dinner is: $12.00 max per family, or $3.50 per adult / $3.00 per child age 4‑12 / Free age 3 and under. For reservations contact us with your name, phone number, the number of adults and children attending, and total cost.

Come join us for dinner, fellowship and help teach our children about giving!!!
