Personal Care Christmas gifts for Harvest House

Our Organic Youth at Harvest House event saw a new addition this year…a service project assembling 100 personal care Christmas gifts for Harvest House to give to clients that come into their Baby & Childrens Ministry!

Participants at the November 15-16 overnight were given the task to assemble into a gift bag one of each of the following:

  • toothpaste
  • toothbrush
  • shampoo
  • conditioner
  • lotion
  • soap

In addition, youth there added their own personal touch by creating a Christmas card with a message of hope to go with each gift.  A message from Harvest House shared the impact these simple gifts have been having…

“THANK YOU to everyone who donated the personal care items to be given to the  mothers who come to the Harvest House Baby & Children’s Ministry!  After they choose clothing and other items for their children, we give them the gift bag & tell them, “This  is for YOU.”  They look so surprised and happy!!  It was so thoughtful of Organic Youth to do this.”

This service project also fit perfectly with the “God’s Work, Our Hands WNY” service focus the Niagara Frontier Conference has this year, through ministry to and with those without in our communities.
