In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., Day of Service, each January AmeriCorps*VISTA members will partner with the community to collect, prepare and distribute emergency hygiene kits to individuals and families staying in area shelters and homeless supportive housing programs.  Kits will be assorted and include items such as:  a tooth brush, toothpaste, comb, deodorant, lotion, soap, shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream, razors, wipes, tissue, feminine hygiene products, and baby goods.  Sample products, such as those found in hotel rooms, are the perfect size for kits.  Items will be packaged in clear baggie type containers and include a Day of Service project announcement. Dr. King said, Life’s persistent and most urgent question is, what are you doing for others This is an ongoing project with donations being collected and stored all year.  If you or your agency or group would like to collect donations for the project anytime during the year, please contact Dorothy Gibson, 706-724-5544 Ext.127 and bring donations to United Way’s office at 630 Ellis Street, Augusta, GA  30901.
