One of the ways we as a church are called to love our city is through the work taking place at The Hope Center. Breakfast and dinner meals continue to be served Monday through Friday and now a mobile shower unit is available for the community every Tuesday. In addition to the showers, hygiene kits with travel-sized items (listed below) are provided to each person taking advantage of this service.
As a church, we have an opportunity to join in this work by creating the projected 800 kits necessary for 2022. We have an opportunity to show each person coming to use the shower unit that they have innate dignity and are seen and valued, not just by us but—most importantly!—by God.
We’re petitioning everyone—especially community groups—to collect and pack kits February 14-18 and drop them off at the Hope Center between 9AM and 5PM, Monday-Friday by February 18. The items needed are below, along with pictures of example kits.
Kits should include travel-sized versions of each of the following:
• Soap/body wash
• Dental floss
• Body lotion
• Feminine hygiene products
