Peru needs your help!

Posted on

Dear FBC Norman Church Family, 

In the next two weeks, the Youth and College Ministries are gearing up for a successful week serving children and families living in Collique, Peru alongside OSA ministries. We depart on Friday, June 26th and return Sunday, July 5th. During our time in Peru, we will be engaged in many projects serving 90 preschoolers and 54 OSA ministry children. One of the projects we will work on is to assist children in learning about safe personal hygiene by creating their own individual kits. 

We need your help by supplying some of the materials that will be used in these kits, our craft projects and to support OSA. Your generous donations will help us aide children in need of basic supplies to keep them healthy. It is a way that we can partner with the established ministry in Peru to spread the love of Christ. 

Please help us by donating these following supplies: 

  • Toothbrushes
  • Toothpaste
  • Deodorant
  • Hairbrush/ Comb
  • Hand Sanitizer (small travel sizes) - lots of them
  • Kleenex
  • Floss
  • Feminine Products
  • Hair Ties
  • Bandaids - (multiple sizes and lots of them)
  • Vitamins
  • Thermometers - for first aid kits
  • Neosporin
  • Ace bandages
  • Gauze
  • Medical tape
  • Qtips
  • Alcohol wipes (mini ones for cleaning cuts)
  • Cotton balls

And for CRAFTS and other VBS needs: 

  • New or gently used t-shirts, all sizes and colors for a craft project
  • Scissors - all sizes
  • Pencil Boxes
  • Glue, glitter, stickers, google eyes
  • Light-weight winter clothing, children and adult sizes
  • New or gently used shoes and socks, children and adult sizes
  • deflated soccer balls, volley balls, or kick balls
  • suitcases for holding “stuff”

Donations may be dropped off in the church office until June 24th. Thank you so much for your support and prayers. You can keep up with us while we are in Peru by checking the church website for daily posts from our team.
