Church World Service Hygiene Kits

The Deacons Worship Board is encouraging all members and friends of Plymouth to participate in this annual project. The value of each kit is $10. The deadline for donating completed kits has been extended to Sunday, May 4. Monetary donations also are welcome in order to cover shipping each kit to its destination at $2/kit. Each completed kit contains: 

  • One hand towel measuring approximately 16" x 28" (no fingertip or bath towels)
  • One washcloth
  • One wide-tooth comb
  • One nail-clipper
  • One bar of soap (bath size in wrapper)
  • One toothbrush (in original packaging)
  • Six standard size Band-Aids®

Please place all items in a one-gallon plastic bag with a zipper-closure, remove excess air from bag, and seal. Please do NOT add toothpaste to the Hygiene Kit. Cartons of toothpaste that have an extended expiration date will be added to Hygiene Kit shipments just prior to shipment. Last year, Plymouth completed 167 Hygiene Kits and collected $850 in donations.

Walking Home

Spring is on its way and the sidewalks are finally clear of snow  so let's take a walk! On Sunday, April 27, at noon, there will be a walk to benefit Just Neighbors Interfaith Homeless Shelter (IHN).  To join us, sign up on the bulletin board outside the church office. We will meet at Headwaters Park at 11:45 am, in preparation to begin the walk at noon. Wear your new Plymouth shirt!

If you would rather make a donation to this cause, you can do that also by using the signup sheet. A pledge sheet that you can fill in with donations and pledges from co-workers and/or friends, also can be provided. If you have questions regarding this event, or about contributions, please call the office for contact information.
