Sunday, May 20, we celebrate Pentecost, with a dramatic reading from Acts 2, the choir sings “Whom Shall I Fear”, we blow bubbles outside as a symbol of the Spirit wind, and we’ll be preparing CWS Hygiene Kits for disaster areas around the world. We still need hand towels (15″ X 28 to 16″X32″, no microfiber or dishcloths), standard size band aids, toe or finger nail clippers, bath-size bars of soap in wrappers and wide-tooth combs.
Here’s a great holiday service opportunity for you, your family, your friends, your office, etc. Help replenish the supply of hygiene kits for disaster areas. We’re collecting the contents for CWS hygiene kits which are sent to disaster areas in the U.S. and around the world. You may drop off any of the kit contents (see below) at Knox.
On Sunday, Dec. 10, 11 a.m. we’ll have a kit-assembly celebration in Fellowship Hall.
Contents of hygiene kits (please no substitutions!)
1 hand towel 15″x26″ to 16″x32″ (no micro fiber or dish towels)
1 wide tooth comb
1 fingernail clipper
1 bath size bar of soap in the wrapper
1 toothbrush in the package
10 standard Band-aids
$2 per kit for shipping. Please write any checks to CWS.
CWS has shipped over 100,000 of these kits to disaster areas so far this year.
Remember, being grateful is a lifestyle choice. The Women of Knox will lead the worship service at Knox Presbyterian on March 26. We will celebrate our gratefulness, especially for the women who came before us and paved the way. Give thanks with a grateful heart! All are welcome.
