Event description

Description


Join us and help those who have been devastated by natural disasters, or who live in some of the poorest areas here in the U.S. and around the world. We need your help to pack personal items (shampoo, toothpaste, and toothbrush, soap, wash cloth and comb) into a hygiene kit. This is a fun event and the whole family can enjoy doing a world of good!

FAQs

What is a hygiene kit?
A hygiene kit consists of a full sized bottle of shampoo, bar of soap, toothbrush, a tube of toothpaste, a washcloth and a comb packaged together in a resealable gallon-sized bag.

Why hygiene?
Hygiene is a universal need and can be distributed anywhere in the world. These kits are life saving consumable goods that our partners can use every day in communities around the world, and they are ideal for those that are suffering or recovering from recent disruptions.

Where does the kit that I pack end up?
International Aid distributes these kits through established partners. Whether through a local, domestic or international location, these kits are distributed to partners who have expressed an immediate need and means for distribution.

Does it cost to attend?

There is a registration fee of $5 to reserve your spot at this event. Although we are a nonprofit organization, Hygiene Kit events take a considerable amount of preparation, time and expense to host. The reason for the registration fee is to: 1) offset some of the costs in hosting the event — that costs International Aid tens of thousands of dollars — with overhead, staff involvement and the purchased components for the kits; and 2) because there is limited space for the participants, we want to ensure that people will show up even after registering, which is more likely to happen when people invest something toward participation. We greatly value your desire to partner with International Aid. If you have concerns with the registration fee, please contact kits@internationalaid.org. You can register here: www.hygienekits.org

Is this a family-friendly event?

Absolutely! Children really love packing the kits, and it’s a great opportunity for the entire family to participate in mission work together. However, we do not provide childcare. So any small children will be the parents’ responsibility to keep an eye on them.

What should I wear?

Closed-toe shoes are required in order to prevent injury when working in a warehouse around pallets and heavy objects. We want your feet to be protected. We recommend wearing comfortable clothes, as it does get quite warm while packing. T-shirts and jeans are suggested.

How many Hygiene Kits is International Aid hoping to pack at the event?

It is our goal to pack 25,000 kits by the end of the event.

How long do I participate for?

Each session is for a period of 2 hours, but the actual packing is less so that we have time for instructions and prayer at the end of each session.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
