    RELIEF KITS

14,507 shipped last year to Jordan, Syria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Haiti, Honduras, Iraq, Lebanon, Ukraine and Serbia.

Contents (NEW items only, in original packaging)

    • 4 large bars bath soap
    • 1 plastic bottle shampoo (13–24 oz; place in resealable plastic bag)
    • 4 large bars laundry soap (Fels Naptha®, Sunlight® or Zote® brands)
    • 4 adult-size toothbrushes
    • 4 new bath towels (medium weight, dark or bright colors)

Due to strict regulations some countries have on the expiration date of toothpaste, MCC no longer asks for toothpaste to be donated with the kits. Instead, we will provide toothpaste with the kits when they ship from our warehouse. The kit will be re-packed in a new 5-gallon plastic pail with lid.

Soap specifications: New bars of bath or laundry soap: All sizes and brands of bar soap are welcome. Please leave in wrapper.

Towel specifications: NEW bath towels: Good quality, dark or bright colors, medium weight preferred. Washcloths are not needed.

Thank you for limiting your generosity to the items listed,

THANK YOU FOR HELPING OUT WITH THIS EFFORT!!!
