Lily’s Service Project

Hi! In my social studies class we were assigned to do a service project for the community. I chose to collect kits for the homeless. If you could donate, please put them in the box outside of Pastor Dee-Ann’s office. The following things are needed for the kits:

  • Socks
  • Lip Balm
  • Travel size lotion, toothpaste, shampoo
  • Toothbrush
  • Wash cloth
  • A comb or brush.

Thank you for your help! —Lily Goff
