A Shower of Toiletries!
First Congregational Church members and friends are invited to donate much needed toiletries during our summer toiletry donation drive for JUMP – the Joint Urban Ministry Project! Thank you to all who have contributed to date! There are still many bags to fill. If you can do so, please shop from the list below or pick up a bag (with a list attached) to fill from the bulletin board in the “midway” at church. Many of our donors have been creative – using coupons and sales for multiple items – or shopping at one of the local dollar stores.
Assisting more than 50 households per week, JUMP is an interfaith weekday outreach ministry supported by more than twenty-five area congregations. Hosted in space donated by our church, JUMP is open Tuesday through Friday, 9am to noon.
SHOPPING LIST FOR JUMP TOILETRIES:
- 2 bars of soap
- shampoo with conditioner
- soft bristle toothbrushes
- package(s) of feminine hygiene products
- a package of disposable razors
- deodorant and shaving cream
- Optional: diapers size 3 or larger.
