World Homeless Weekend Service Project
Sunday, October 10, 9 – 11 am in Sumners Hall
Homeless pack blessing at 10:45 am
In recognition of World Homeless Weekend, we are partnering with SEARCH Homeless Services and The Way Home to pack homeless kits to share with our community partners who serve the homeless. St. John the Divine will provide drawstring bags and a blessing card in which volunteers can write a personal note of encouragement and faith.
We are also looking for items to stock the homeless kits. Purchase them from our Amazon Wish List and have them delivered directly to St. John the Divine, or purchase from the list below and drop off in Sumners Hall before the stuffing event.
Items needed for homeless packs:
- Lip balm
- Travel-size toothbrush/toothpaste combo pack
- Travel-size Wet Ones or similar wipe packets
- Full or travel-size bar of soap
- Travel-size deodorant
- Pocket-size tissues
- Travel-size shampoo & conditioner
- Travel-size lotion
- Mini water bottles
- Protein or granola bars
- Travel size sunscreen
- Small-size hand sanitizer
- Small-size boxes of raisins, trail mix, or nuts
