CWS HYGIENE KITS
Despite restrictions due to the pandemic, in the past year Church World Services distributed more than 27,000 hygiene kits to help our brothers and sisters in crisis. Most recently, more than 2,000 hygiene kits were sent to Texas in response to the damaging winter weather and 1,500 kits to Alabama after the recent tornados. The need is great and ongoing.
WFPC will again participate in this mission by putting together hygiene kits. Each kit consists of one hand towel measuring approximately 16”x32” (no fingertip, bath, dish or microfiber), one wash cloth, one wide-tooth comb (removed from package), one fingernail or toenail clipper (removed from package), one toothbrush in the original package, one bath size bar of soap, and ten standard size Band-aids. These items are to be placed in a gallon-sized zip lock bag.
Donation boxes will be in the CLC and the narthex. Collection will end May 6.

Serving our Veterans
Have you ever thought that food insecurity would affect some of the men and women that we honor on Memorial Day and Veterans Day? Well, it does on an everyday basis. Our church sends shelf-stable food for breakfast or dinner every month to keep our veterans going during their hard times.
The Veteran's Assistance team is in the process of planning an upcoming annual VA food drive for Saturday, May 29, at Lowes Food (12524 Capital Blvd.). Click here
to sign up to help out! If you are interested in more information, please contact Bonnie or Benny Hoots at 919-529-4373.
