During the month of June we are collecting personal care and hygiene products for the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York. They have put out a special appeal for "The Care Necessities" that people need for day-to-day comfort and health but are not covered by SNAP (food stamp) benefits.
The items we collect will be distributed to area food pantries. Bins will be provided in the sanctuary and outside the kitchen. Note: regular sizes needed, not samples or travel sizes.
We invite you to pick up one or more of these items each time you shop this month and drop them off when you come to church. Here's the list of requested items: bar soap, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrushes (individually packaged), toothpaste, men's or women's disposable razors, shaving cream, toilet paper, sanitary pads, tampons, diapers, baby wipes, hand & body lotion, deodorant.
