Help for East Texas became help for GA and FL Irma victims

In response to the devastating floods in Texas, the South Georgia Conference was working together to collect needed supplies. However, with Irma hitting Florida and Georgia, we have been given a need closer to home.  We will be collecting items for hygiene kits through the month of September. We will then assemble them and get them to the folks in need. These are the items needed for each 1 gallon storage bag:
- 1 hand towel - 15x25 - 17x27 (not dish towels)
- 1 wash cloth
- 1 comb (sturdy, longer than 6")
- 1 set of fingernail clippers
- 1 bath size bar of soap (any brand except Ivory or Jergens)
- 1 individually wrapped adult sized toothbrush
- 6 band aids (3/4" - 1" size)
You may purchase the items for one kit or several of any one item that will be combined with others. There is a particular way to pack the items, so please don't worry with that. We will do that once we get all of the items. There are specific directions for putting these together. Nothing else can be added. We will also send the money for toothpaste to be purchased and added to the bags.
