Hygiene Kits Needed for Bright Blessings

via https://www.brightblessingsusa.org/fyl-projects

We are critically low on supplies and volunteer power to maintain the current need for hygiene kits. Since March, we have been receiving requests from dozens of schools for hundreds of hygiene kits for these kits so we’re calling in our community support troops.
Here are two ways you can help out:
  1. ASSEMBLE HYGIENE KITS AT HOME: Purchase supplies and assemble hygiene kits according to the downloadable instructions below.
  2. SEND SUPPLIES FROM AMAZON: Help us stock up on the critical care items included in the kit and have them shipped directly to us. You can refer to the Hygiene Kit instructions or visit our Wish List for our most needed items.
PRE-ASSEMBLED KITS OR SUPPLIES CAN BE DROPPED OFF OUTSIDE THE MAIN DOOR OF OUR MATTHEWS OFFICE. PLEASE CALL THE OFFICE AHEAD OF TIME TO ARRANGE A DROP OFF TIME.
IF YOU OR ANYONE IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD IS NOT FEELING WELL, PLEASE DO NOT DROP OFF DONATIONS OF ANY KIND. DONATIONS WILL STILL BE GLADLY ACCEPTED THROUGH AMAZON.
WE UNDERSTAND HAND SANITIZER
IS DIFFICULT TO FIND DUE TO
COVID-19. IF HAND SANITIZER IS UNAVAILABLE, THE KITS CAN BE ASSEMBLED WITHOUT IT.
