Love INC had a small presence at the Project Homeless Connect event last month at the JACC. We dropped off a box of Personal Care Kits that our friends from United Way helped pass out. Over 200 people attended the event and ALL the PC Kits were gratefully received! Next year we’ll bring more and hopefully have our own table.
Each kit consisted of a small zip lock bag with travel size soap, shampoo, conditioner, & lotion. These kits are given at events like this and Loving Locals, the alternative high school, and in our Transitional Backpacks. Individual & family kits are also given as needed and are such a blessing since Food Stamps don’t cover these items.
You can support the Personal Care Gap Ministry by donating your extra travel size toiletry items you receive from hotels. The drop off location for this ministry is at Chapel by the Lake.
