The items we have included in our kits are important health and hygiene products that cannot be purchased with SNAP benefits (more commonly known as "food stamps"). These items can be quite pricey for individuals to purchase, and yet can make a big difference when it comes to their health and being presentable for personal interactions and job interviews.
Over half of our group participated financially in supporting this project; one member completed the shopping, with two members offering donations of items; and then three of us assembled the bags.
|We had some help from our littlest members as well!|
The women of Living Stones have created eleven personal care kits, while women in Bible studies and circles of Media Presbyterian Church will create nine additional kits. We will be able to donate twenty personal care kits total to the Media Food Bank.
