Current Projects that will run until the end of November:

  1. Area Agency on Aging

When a client receives in home services for cleaning their home and personal care for bathing but they have limited items, the worker can only use what the client has available. Local churches volunteer to make cleaning kits and hygiene kits for the case managers to take to the clients home so they have the proper cleaning supplies they need.

Home Cleaning Kits

  • Cleaning Kits - Mop bucket, Mop, Broom, Pine Sol, Ajax, Bathroom cleaner and Household Spray cleaner

Personal Care Hygiene Kits

  • Generic for men or women: Hygiene Kits – Soap, Shampoo, Deodorant, tooth brush, toothpaste, lotion, powder 
  1. Good Samaritan Clinic
  • Donate snacks for the workers that come straight from work on Thursdays to volunteer such as doctors, nurses, and many others.  
  • Bring a lunch meal for workers on Tuesday or Thursday.
  1. DHR(Department of Human Resources) - Foster Children Program
  • Donate toys for the visitation room at DHR. DHR emailed me that the room needs new toys for young and old. Examples: (Videos, Puzzles, Crayons, Coloring Books,)

If you are interested in taking on one of these projects, contact Debbie Gregory at 205-391-1652 or debbiegregory8@hotmail.com.
