Care Kits for the Homeless
When you see a person begging on a street corner in Chicago, or walking the traffic line looking for handouts, are you unsure how
to respond? When our high school youth worked with the Chicago Bridge Project in March, we assembled small care kits that contain a
cereal bar, beef jerky, bandaids, ointment and wipes all rubber banded together. These handy kits can be kept in your car or in your
bag to hand out so that you can positively respond to these requests. The WF youth group and confirmation class have provided a basket
in the rotunda with some of these care kits for our congregation. While supplies last, please take a few so you can share a little
bit of love with someone in need!
Our food pantries are in need of canned goods, whole grains, shaving cream, disposable razors, feminine hygiene products, bar soap,
toothpaste, shampoo, toilet paper, laundry and dish detergent and diapers, especially sizes 4, 5 & 6. PRC and the Interfaith Food
Pantry are always grateful for our donations.
