During Lent, the youth are planning to run a multi-week drive for items for “Personal Hygiene Kits/Blessings Kits” to give to the Sammamish Police Department who distribute them to homeless people they encounter. Since we are now cancelling Sunday activities for two weeks, please continue to collect any of the following items and bring them to church when we reopen.
Here’s the list of each weekly item:
Week 1 (March 1): gloves, adult sizes
Week 2 (March 8): soft food, like chewy protein bars, peanut butter packets, or fruit cups
Week 3 (March 15): travel-sized hygiene products, especially toothbrush and paste, but also soap, shampoo, and others
Week 4 (March 22): $10 Orca bus card or hand-warmers
Week 5 (March 29): Wet Wipes (travel packs) and small tissue packs
