from the Annual Gathering Planning Team
We are inviting each IKC congregation to support the global mission, Days for Girls,
which is “is changing the status quo, through quality menstrual care solutions, health education, and income-generation opportunities.” We’d love for you to help us meet our goals below by collecting the following items and bring them to Annual Gathering 2019:
- 100 pairs of 100% cotton brief-style women’s underpants in dark and dark-patterned colors. We need youth sizes 10 through 14, and women’s sizes 6 and 7. (If you send packs with lighter colors, no problem! The lighter colored underwear will be donated to local IKC agencies.)
- 200 bags of Ziploc brand freezer bags, with the standard “zipper” closure, no slider bags. They must be this type and brand.
- 100 washcloths, 100% cotton, in dark, appealing colors.
We will use these items to create feminine hygiene kits for young women in places where access to and education about feminine hygiene is scarce or non-existent. With washable and reusable kits, which last about 3 years, young women can continue to learn, work, and socialize without interruption.
