January focus for Festival of Sharing

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.
