That money was given to the social worker at Riverside who used it to help another young mother without a car seat. A woman from Grandview called to offer to pay for the carseat. Another young mother offered a stroller. Then Officer Zacher took Tammy shopping at Target to shop for the babies. We ended up helping not 1, but 4 babies that day!
Thank you Graceland Target for offering the $25 gift card and inviting us to return every few months to any Target to receive $50 gift card for God’s Hygiene Help Center. Thank you to Sandy, a new volunteer who has offered to be our “go between” Target coordinator.
GHHC welcomes 2 more volunteers who have joined our Advisory Board: Becky Armstrong and Lois Maxwell, Job and Family Services Supervisor (and long time friend of Tammy’s). Welcome and thanks for your willingness to grow with God’s Hygiene.
Anne Weigand, Director of Happiness at Aunt Flow, and Diane met to talk about getting needed feminine dignity products at wholesale cost. If you would like to make a donation towards purchase of these products, we will be adding a link soon on our Donate page. Your donation will allow us to order at wholesale cost of 500 tampons or pads for $70. That is a lot cheaper than what our in kind donors are paying in regular retail stores. Then the items will be delivered directly to God’s Hygiene Help Center for us to share with students at schools in the area. So please hold off purchasing any feminine dignity items at the corner store. Thank you.
On May 19 and May 22 we held Board meetings for our team of advisors. It was decided that we really need to search for the funds to hire an Executive Director for God’s Hygiene Help Center. If you and your company have ideas how to submit a grant or would like to help us in the search, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tammy should serve as the heart ❤️ and storyteller of God’s Hygiene visiting different churches and centers.
A woman’s house burned down and she never got back on her feet so she’s homeless. She has a job interview at McDonald’s tomorrow and needs clean clothes.” Amazingly a woman named BJ had donated several bags of clothes we picked up on Sunday. So GHHC gave her the bags of jeans and other clothes, 2 packages of adult diapers, 5 large Blessing Bags, 2 bottles of detergent, and 2 coffee mugs for the homeless.
In May we served about 85 people at the Douglas Center, 20 at the Barack Center and 20 disabled and seniors on Howey Road. Thank you to Kathryn Farrar for shopping and packing 3 Clean Start Baskets. This is a special project only for those being released through the Embark/Kindway programs.
19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. 20 To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen. Phil. 4
