Newman UCC Board of Missions Offering Opportunity to Give Back


Newman Church is also collecting Hygiene Kits for Church World Service, to be distributed to disaster victims and those in need worldwide.

A Hygiene Kit consists of the following:
• One hand towel measuring approximately 16" x 28" (no fingertip or bath towels),
• one washcloth,
• one wide-tooth comb (remove from package),
• one nail clipper (fingernail or toenail, remove from package),
• one bar of soap (bath size in wrapper),
• one toothbrush (in original packaging),
• and ten standard size Band-Aids®.

Place all items in a one-gallon plastic bag with a zipper closure, remove excess air from bag, and seal. Please do not add toothpaste to the Hygiene Kit. Cartons of toothpaste that have an extended expiration date will be added to Hygiene Kit shipments just prior to shipment. Completed kits can be dropped off at Newman Church on the morning of February 23, March 16 and 30, April 13 and 27.
