HYGIENE KITS help disaster victims reclaim their dignity and self-respect and are used as teaching tools with children. When people can maintain personal hygiene, their overall health improves.
SCHOOL KITS provide tools for education, which changes lives. In countries where children don't have books, school supplies or classrooms, a school kit may be their only educational resource.
CLEANING KITS-These supplies enable people to begin the overwhelming job of cleaning up after a flood or hurricane.
Personal Care Cupboard
Do to the need of non-food items, the members of 1st UMC, Sioux City have created a Personal Care Cupboard which stocks these items. The cupboard is open on Wednesdays from 5-6pm and Thursdays from 2-3 pm at 1st UMC, 1915 Nebraska St., Sioux City IA. Each month the members of Grace collect items to be given to the Personal Care Cupboard. Items can be brought to Grace and placed in the red mission wheelbarrow located in the Parlor.
