MLK Day of Service: Jan 16

Volunteers and Donations needed

4th annual hygiene kit service activity

MLK day Monday 1/16 from 10:00am-11:30am

Outdoors under the Bryant Elementary basketball courts


What is a Hygiene kit?

Hygiene kits are new 1 gallon zip loc bags filled with a variety of packaged snacks and useful products that will bring warmth and hope to a person in need. We organize and deliver these kits to the Miller Community Center in Capitol hill, which provides shampoo, soap, and hot showers to local residents. The kits get passed out to folks after their shower. Last year, the Bryant community donated 205 kits!

What the event will look like:

The whole family is welcome. We’ll have several tables set up at the basketball courts with loads of new items ready to organize into kits. There will be music, a letter writing station, and free Starbucks coffee for volunteers.

How to help:

  • PURCHASING items ASAP directly from this registry (simplest way) or bringing some in on your own
  •  HANDWRITING notes at the note/drawing station at the event
  • LOANING out your folding table for the event – we’ll need many tables to help organize all the items email A
  • SORTING the items out during the event with your fellow community volunteers.

Useful items include new socks, new gloves, packaged snacks, nail clippers, cotton swabs, masks, lip balm, lotion, sanitizer, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, band aids, cough drops, hand warmers. No razors. Soap and shampoo is already provided at the Miller CC. Feminine products are welcome – they will be organized separately and placed in the women’s restroom.
