bags of blessings
Partners for Wichita invites everyone to collect personal care items for people in need throughout the Wichita area. We add a blessing and deliver bags to organizations and agencies that work closely with those who are most in need. This annual February project is a community-wide Valentine for neighbors in need. Together we make a difference!
In 2020 over 1200 Bags of Blessings, filled with more than a dozen personal care items, plus many boxes of extra items were collected by about 40 congregations, groups, and individuals. The blessings were then delivered to over 35 helping places throughout the area.
Put "Bags of Blessings" filled with small-size essential hygiene supplies on your service calendar each year.
Fill gallon-sized zipper plastic bags with each of these items:
Soap (bar or liquid), Lotion, Razor, Shampoo, Conditioner, Deodorant, Comb, Chapstick/Lip balm, Washcloth, Kleenex, Emery board or clippers, Toothpaste, Toothbrush, Shaving Cream, Bandaids (3), White socks (1pair).
