Our ministry with asylum seekers is still in need of donations. The International Rescue Committee continues to receive from 100 to 200 people per day. This has resulted in constantly depleted stocks of clothing, shoes and other items.
PANTS, SLACKS & SHORTS:
We are especially in need of pants, slacks and shorts for men and women. For men we desperately need sizes 30, 32 and 34. They need to be good working pants or shorts. We do not need dress pants. The pants and shorts need to be new or gently used. For women we need small and medium sizes and like many women in this country there seems to be a preference for leggings. Again the leggings, pants and shorts need to be new or gently used. We again do not need dressy slacks.
TENNIS & ATHLETIC SHOES:
We are in need of shoes. For men we need smaller sizes 8, 9, 10. We do not need dress shoes. Needed are athletic and tennis shoes. Sturdy work boots are also needed by some. Additionally, a few “flip flops” would be good. The shoes should be new or gently used.
Women are in need of tennis and athletic shoes in smaller sizes such as 6, 7, 8 and 9. Some “flip flops” would also be useful. We do not need high heels or other dress shoes.
DISPOSABLE RAZORS, SHAVING CREAM & NAIL CLIPPERS:
In addition, we need disposable razors, shaving cream and nail clippers. There are several websites that sell a box of disposable razors where each razor has included with it a small tube of shaving cream. This is helpful as it is hard to find small cans or containers of shaving cream and the bigger containers lead to a lot of product not being used.
Please email Pastor Jim O’Neal to arrange for items to be picked up. Thank you for your generosity in the past, present and future. Your compassion makes a difference.
