Items for these kits include children’s shampoo, small toothbrush and paste, deodorant, small hair brush/comb, wash cloth, hand towel. These items need to be placed in gallon size Ziploc bags – bags will be provided by WELCA and will be in the container box where items will be collected. If possible, please try to purchase all of the items needed for one kit. Children’s Hygiene Kits or items for the kits will be collected until Sunday, June 7. And as always, thank you for your support of WELCA.
