The Synod of the Covenant has asked for our assistance with Health Fair Kits. They will take the kits whenever they can get them, so this is something that the PW promotes all year long. Regular sized items are preferred over travel size but the need is so great they will take travel size. Each kit should be placed in a 1 gallon size zip lock bag.  The items requested are as follows:

*Shampoo *Conditioner *Deodorant *Soap  *Wash cloth *Comb and/or brush                       *Toothbrush & toothpaste    *Dental floss *Socks    *Hand towel   *Chapstick    *Razor and                           *Hair Ties         

                                                                  Completed kits may be brought to the Maumee Valley Presbytery’s PW’s Spring Gathering on April 21st.
