BENTONVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) — A local church is doing its part to help people struck by disaster and it’s inviting the public to help.
The Bentonville Community Church of the Nazarene will host a crisis care kit party. The kits are filled with things like toothpaste, soap, and small stuffed animals; things church volunteer, Stephanie Red said goes a long way.
“These hygiene packets that go to people who have been victims of some kind of natural disaster really provide the basic needs we take for granted every day,” Red said. “But they provide people something tangible that can help them begin to get back on their feet.”
Red also said the packages aren’t only beneficial to the people who receive them, but the people who assemble them as well.
“This is a great way to engage the whole family to serve the community,” Red said. “Kids can be involved here. Everyone really has a chance to be the hands and feet of Jesus to the community.”
The packaging party takes place Wednesday, July 17 at the Bentonville Community Church of the Nazarene from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. It’s open to the public, but if you’re unable to attend, click here to sponsor a kit for $15.
