Weekly distribution in Harrisburg

Collecting items for "Blessing Bags"


MCC of the Spirit, 2973 Jefferson Street, Harrisburg, is collecting items to put in "Blessing Bags." The items are given to the homeless in downtown Harrisburg every week.

"Food Not Bombs" will be assisting the organization in distributing bags at its weekly feeding of the homeless. Volunteers are also needed to help assemble and distribute the bags.

Needed items include travel size tubes of tooth past, tooth brushes, soap, disposable razors and small cans of shaving cream, shampoo, deodorant, mouth wash, floss picks, bandages in sample packs, other hygiene products for women, socks, gloves, hats, blankets, etc.

Donations are to be placed MCC's entry way at the church. This is an ongoing ministry.
