Toiletry Drive for Homeless Students

The Christmas holiday has come and gone, but for far too many, the need is ongoing. During the months of January, February and March (up until Easter) St. Thomas’ and Church of the Holy Comforter we will be collecting toiletries for students at Parkville High School (a member of the Loch Raven Network). The items below are in particularly high demand and the good folks at PHS cannot keep up with the need. Please consider donating as much and as often as you can. The items you get at hotels are perfectly sized and other items can be purchased in in travel sizes.

  • Lip Balm such as Chapstick, CarMax
  • Small deodorants for men and women
  • Body Lotion
  • Shampoo/Body Wash
  • Mouthwash
  • Travel toothbrushes and toothpaste
  • Dental floss
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Tampons (these are given out privately)

Look for the basket in the Narthex and let’s see if we can fill it several times between now and Easter. For more information, or with any questions, please contact Beth Crosby at 410-804-5629 or at bcrosby.saintthomas@gmail.com.

‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’ –Matthew 25:40
