You Can Send A Personal Health or Hope In A Box Kit to a victim in need

I copied the below information directly from
The Presbyterian Polis - The Disaster Aid Network

Personal Health Kit
PDA recently found out that the Medical Benevolence Foundation (MBF), a validated mission support group of PC(USA), has offered PDA the use of their warehouse in Houston, and we are very thankful.
We have decided that a special kit can be prepared to benefit familes who are in shelters. This kit is comparable to the Gift of the Heart health kit with some modifications. We are calling it the Personal Health Kit


Personal Health Kit contents:
1 - bath towel
1 - hand towel
1 - wash cloth
1 - comb
1 - toothbrush
1 - tube of toothpaste (4-7 ounces)
2 - bars of soap (bath size)
1 - container (non-aerosol) deodorant
Seal all items in a one-gallon plastic bag with a zipper closure and roll in the bath towel.

Hope-in-a-Box Kit
The Hope-in-a-Box Kit has been designed to help children who have been impacted by disaster. This is not a toy kit — it is a gift that will make a true difference in addressing immediate hygiene and emotional needs of traumatized children.

Hope-in-a-Box kit contents:
1 - Rubbermaid® Clear Impression shoebox with lid, 6.5 qt., or other flexible clear plastic 6.5 qt. box with lid
1 - small stuffed bear
1 - small soft ball
1 - harmonica, or other small musical instrument
1 - 6x9 non-spiral bound pad of regular or construction paper (60-100 sheets)
1 - Slinky® (metal or plastic)
1 - yo-yo
1 - 7-foot child’s jump rope
1 - comb
1 - toothbrush
1 - tube of toothpaste (4-7 oz.)
1 - box of 24 crayons
1 - large eraser
6 - new pencils with erasers
1 - pencil sharpener
1 - 30-centimeter ruler (12”)
1 - pair blunt child’s scissors
Place all items inside the Rubbermaid® shoebox, close lid, and tie securely with ribbon.
