Plans are being made to provide toiletry bags to the children in the Cumberland County Foster Care Program at Christmas. In 2020 there were 612 children on the House of Hope Angel Tree. The need is great in Cumberland County and House of Hope does an amazing job providing services to these children and their foster parents throughout the year.
The toiletry bags for boys and girls age 1-11 will include body wash, shampoo, comb/brush, body lotion, hairbands, washcloth, toothbrush, toothpaste, chap stick, Kleenex.
The toiletry bags for boys and girls 12-18 will include body wash/soap, shampoo/conditioner, body lotion, toothbrush, toothpaste, comb/brush, washcloth, Kleenex, hand sanitizer, hairbands, nail file, chap stick, deodorant.
Two items will be featured in the SOTH newsletter each month, but all needed items can be donated at any time. There is currently a “community outreach” collection box by the credenza near the mailboxes.
The organizing committee is Mary Beck, leader, Linda Long and Sara Bradshaw. We are looking for more committee members to help with this project. You can contact any of us to join the committee. Our goal is to provide a toiletry bag to all of the children on the House of Hope Angel Tree at Christmas this year. As they say, “it takes a village”, and Shepherd of the Hills is an awesome village of loving and caring members. Together we can reach this goal!
