Project CUCC (Caring, Unbiased, Church, Community) is kicking off!!!! After a bit of brainstorming and discussions with the School District, we will be gathering items for Jr. High and Sr. High students in need and providing a place at our church (empty office in the basement) for them to come and “shop” for items that they may need themselves or their family may need. These items will be provided free of charge. We are working out the details of the shopping hours. Once we have those coordinated with the School District, we will share them with everyone because help may be needed at certain times during the day, evenings, or on weekends.
At this time, we are asking for donations of the following items: shampoo, deodorant, razors (male and female), shaving cream (male and female), soap, nail polish, nail polish remover, nail files, nail clippers, powder, perfume, cologne, feminine products, wash cloths, facial wipes, facial cleansers, acne treatments, hand sanitizers (including the small purse-size ones), cleaning wipes, dish soap, dish cloths, laundry soap, fabric softener, buckets, cleaning solutions (Windex, Mr. Clean, etc.), Kleenex, toilet paper, toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouth wash, and the list goes on and on.
As we get into the cooler months, we may start asking for hats, scarves, socks, gloves, and school supplies . . . we will keep you posted on these needs as well.
We are also reaching out to the Tremont School District to see if there is a need there. If there is, we may “partner” with a local church in Tremont to provide a shopping place in their Village as well.
Donation “buckets” will be placed at the back of the Fellowship Hall (Main Street side). Our goal is to get the store up and running by mid-October.
Contact Jenna Buffington, Brenda Heppard, Linda Pfanz, or Sharyl Nuske with any questions, concerns, or ideas!
