Activities: We will prepare inspirational cards and pack hygiene kits. Hygiene kit packing involves assembling soap, shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant and a toothbrush into a kit bag that will be distributed to partners including schools, Boys & Girls Clubs and other youth-serving organizations.
Attire: Please wear comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty, close-toed shoes, and it can get warm in our space so t-shirts and/or shorts are fine.
