Hygiene Kit Packing

7:00-7:30 p.m., Plaza
In weeks ahead, Virginia will potentially see thousands of Afghans arriving at our military bases for entrance processing while determining more permanent placement. They are coming with little resources. To help provide for their basic needs, the Missions Development Team of our Baptist General Association of Virginia is collecting hygiene kits that will be distributed at these locations.
On Wednesday evening, September 22, we will put together as many hygiene kits as we are able. These will be assembled in one-gallon bags and will include the following items:
- Facial tissue, individual pks.
- Shaving cream/razor, small containers
Below is a Sign Up Genius link that will allow you to select items that you will donate. Please bring your items on September 19. Bins will be available outside of the sanctuary for placing your items. In addition, a drop-off opportunity will remain available at the Lower Commons entrance from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Please make sure they are at the church prior to Wednesday the 22 so they can be sorted in preparation for a smooth packing event.
Thank you for the ways you will support this ministry through your donations as well as your participation in preparing the kits. If you have any questions, please contact Rev. Anna and Dean Miller.
