Volunteers from Beulah and St. Paul United Methodist churches gathered last week at Beulah UMC at Port Haywood to pack hygiene kits for the homeless in Mathews and Gloucester counties.
“Our goal is 300 today,” Rev. Dede Parrish of Beulah and St. Paul said on Sept. 10.
The churches worked with Pastor Wendy Roundy and the Helping the Homeless Ministry. The hygiene kits will be handed out by the ministry program along with food in the two counties. Items packed in the kits include razors, combs, devotional books, tissues, shampoo, deodorant, soap, toothbrushes, tubes of toothpaste, among other items.
The churches received both material and monetary donations for the hygiene kits. The monetary donations they received allowed them to buy items for the kits in bulk.
