Help us make blessing bags to be distributed to individuals and families in need in Ames. Blessing bags contain necessary personal items such as toiletries, gloves, a snack, etc. We are seeking donations of:

  • Both full size and travel/mini-sized: bars of soap, body wash, shampoo and conditioner, deodorant for women and men, toothpaste, toothbrushes and dental floss
  • Travel-sized Kleenex/tissues and hand sanitizer
  • Hot Hands (hand warmers)
  • Wash cloths
  • Granola bars
  • Thin, knit gloves and socks
  • Combs, brushes, nail clippers
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Gently used purses, fanny packs, backpacks & drawstring bags

Items will be collected in the marked bin in the Gathering Space every Sunday in February. Then, join us to assemble the bags on Sunday, February 23 from 1 to 3 p.m. in Wesley Hall.
