The situation is gradually improving in Lake Charles, LA, however, there is still an urgent need for basic supplies, such as personal hygiene kits, particularly in outlying areas. Please see this post on Mission Presbytery Facebook page about hygiene kits.
1 - hand towel (approximately 16" x 28", no fingertip or bath towels)
1 - washcloth
1 - wide-tooth comb (remove from package)
1 - nail clipper
1 - bar of soap (bath size in wrapper)
1 - toothbrush (in original packaging)
10 - Band-Aids® or other adhesive bandage strips
Please do not add toothpaste to the Hygiene Kit. Seal all items in a one-gallon plastic bag with a zipper closure.
September 26th thru October 3rd, there will be a collection box by the west Sanctuary doors at RRPC. You may drop the completed hygiene kits and other supplies there.
If you feel inclined to tackle a slightly larger project, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance is also collecting Cleanup Buckets, box fans, and tools. More Information is available on here, or by contacting Tim Airhart.
