This year, our Blessing Bags donation will benefit the LGBT Center of Reading. Rather than a full event to assemble bags, we will have a deadline of November 19th for collecting these items to help restock their pantry, and will ask that we have a few people volunteer to deliver the donation to the LGBT Center.
These are the items we’re looking to collect- body wash, shampoo, hand sanitizer, can openers (I know this isn’t a personal hygiene item, but is in high demand!), nail clippers, tooth brushes, tooth paste, floss, mouth wash, condoms, personal lubricant, menstrual pads, tampons, incontinence pads, diapers, baby wipes, etc. As we are entering winter, we can also use hats, gloves, scarves and socks.
Donations can be placed in the boxes/bins in the Gerber Room, or contact Corinne Hauk to coordinate.
