Whenever I travel and stay at a hotel/motel, some of the conveniences I look forward to are the small travel size shampoo, conditioners, body lotion that enhance my stay experience and allows me not to have to pack in my bags. Of course I tend to collect those small vials of shampoo or conditioners with the sincere intent of using them some day but that doesn’t seem to happen. Instead I end up with drawers full of travel size containers in the bathroom with little room to put my toothpaste or shaving cream. What to do?
I believe I found a solution! On July 11, 2015, we will join with others through the Westside Church Collaborative to pack Hygiene Kits for distribution to the homeless and the poor in Santa Monica and other areas. We will meet at University Bible Church (10801 Wilshire Blvd., L.A. 90024) at 10:00 a.m. to pack the Hygiene Kits together for distribution. We distribute the Hygiene Kits through a variety of sources such as West Coast Care to families or individuals that are reunited with their families across the nation or through Cru, a campus ministry that ministers to the homeless in promenade area of Santa Monica.
In the meantime, we are collecting travel size shampoo and conditioners through Resplendent Light Community Church every Sunday during our worship services for the purpose of always remembering the less fortunate and to share the Love of Christ in our community.
