For the month of January, the Festival of Sharing focus is on the “Missouri Paper Products Pack” project. Each pack will consist of the following items:
- 3 wrapped packages of toilet paper with 4 double rolls each (unable to receive 12 rolls in one package)
- 2 rolls paper towels (good quality)
- 2 facial tissue (large rectangular boxes)
In 2017, there were requests for 4,769 packs state-wide, but only 928 were provided. Paper products are critical for low-income families because food assistance coupons cannot be used to purchase them.
Collection boxes are available in the church greeting area.
