Maundy Thursday Mission Project – Collection of Toiletries for Refugee Assistance Partners (RAP)

Date(s) - 04/06/2023
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Please help recently-arrived refugees by donating toiletry items – Join us for dinner and assembly of kits

Please help provide personal toiletry items to recently arrived refugees and other forcibly displaced persons fleeing violence and persecution.  We are collaborating with our Missions partner Refugee Assistance Partners NJ.

Following dinner, we will move to the sanctuary for worship at 7 pm.

How can you help?

Please purchase items on the list below, and leave them in the Toiletry Collection boxes in the narthex, Westminster Hall, or church house coat room, by April 6.

 On Thursday, April 6 at 6:00 pm, come help us prepare family packs of hygiene items and enjoy dinner together!

Collection list (items for family packs)

Note: If you shop on, we have created a wishlist containing the items using the church’s Amazon account – items you purchase will be shipped to the church. (When you check out on Amazon, you will see the church listed as a choice of shipping address and you can choose to have them shipped directly here.) Quantities are updated on the wishlist so you can see which items are still needed.

Full size items only, please; no samples.  Multi-packs are fine.  For the sake of equity, consistency, and respect for ethnicity and culture, we are only collecting these items:

  • shampoo for thick, curly hair, 15 oz or larger
  • conditioner for thick, curly hair, 15 oz or larger
  • bar soap, full size
  • lotion for dry skin, 7 oz or larger
  • deodorant (non-gendered preferred if possible), 2.5 oz or larger
  • toothpaste, 4 oz or larger
  • toothbrushes, manual type, child or adult sizes
  • feminine pads (not tampons), package of 36 or more

We thank you for choosing welcome!
