The Household Starter Kit Ministry blessed 256 families in 2012. However, the need is on-going. We currently have outstanding requests for 55 kits and our inventory is running low on the following basic kitchen and bath items:
- 2 quart saucepans
- 10″ skillets
- bakeware (9×13 pans, cookie sheets, etc)
- drinking glasses
- bath and hand towels
In addition, December’s Sharing God’s Warmth mobile clothing distribution depleted the stock of warm coats. The Call Center receives one or two calls each week from local schools looking for warm clothing for kids showing up in need and underdressed for the weather. Our empty racks currently need to be filled with:
- children’s coats, size 3T through teen
- women’s coats, all sizes through 3XL
- men’s coats, all sizes through 3XL
Please consider running a collection drive for one or more of these items at your church, school or work. All items must be in very good condition (or new!), as they are going directly into another family’s home. Contact Spark at 847-731-0526 or email@example.com for more information.
Start the new year by sharing your blessings with others in your community!
