We decided that we would like to put together "care packages" for Walter Johnson Middle School. The care packages will be made up of things like shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, soap, and other toiletry type of products. The plan is to give these packages to the guidance councilor so that they may hand them out to kids that need them. We all agreed that middle school is a tough time on the body...as things begin to change and hormones kick in, some kids may not have the tools necessary to maintain proper hygiene. We chose Walter Johnson Middle School since some of the needier elementary schools feed into this school PLUS they are allowing us to use their facility for our blood drive and it would be a nice gesture for us to donate these items.
The Provisionals would like to open up donations to our project to all members and sustainers. Please bring travel sized items (or small enough to all fit into brown paper bag in the end). Here is our scheduled donations:
Bring shampoo & conditioner to the February Meeting
Bring toothbrush & toothpaste to the March Meeting
Bring deodorant & soap to the April Meeting
Then during the New/Old Board Meeting in May, bring other odds and ins. We will assemble the packages at that time.
