Emergency Shelter Kits

As you well know, hurricane season is upon us!  In an effort to be ready for sheltering those fleeing the storm, we are beginning our initial preparations. Below is a list of items that make up a Shelter Entry Kit. Many will come without basic essentials needed so we are asking for your help in advance to prepare 200 kits. If you could make up one or more of these bags and STORE THEM AT YOUR HOME until the shelter opens we would be so appreciative.

Shelter Entry Kits:

  • 1 blanket
  • 1 pillow (standard size but as thin as possible)
  • 1 top sheet
  • 1 full size bath towel
  • 1 hand towel
  • 1 wash cloth
  • 1 bar of fragrance free soap
  • 1 container of Degree or other unisex deodorant
  • 1 toothbrush
  • 1 tube of toothpaste
  • 1 bottle of shampoo/ conditioner-in-one
  • 1 gallon size Ziploc bag
  • 1 large black trash bag

Please place these items in a plastic trash bag and tie it shut. We will call when the items need to be brought to the church. THANK YOU!!
