From Church World Service (http://www.churchworldservice.org):
Church World Service (CWS) needs your help!
CWS is unable to fill pending international and domestic requests for Kits because of a lack of adequate inventory in its warehouse. Please help CWS fill requests by providing these much needed Kits:
1 hand towel measuring approximately 16” x 28” (no fingertip or bath towels)
1 wide-tooth comb
1 nail clipper
1 bar of soap (bath size in wrapper)
1 toothbrush (in original packaging)
6 standard size Band-aids®
Place all items in a one-gallon plastic bag with a zipper closure, remove excess air from bag, and seal. Please do not add toothpaste to the Kit. Cartons of toothpaste that have an extended expiration date will be added to the Hygiene Kit shipment just prior to shipment.
