As we approach hurricane season, SMM is working with Family Promise to help families prepare. During the month of June, we will be collecting items to help those who are traveling from church to church and those newly placed in homes, assemble Emergency Supply kits. Family Promise is requesting donations from all of its host churches and SMM has been asked to supply the following items.
- Flashlights and extra batteries
- First aid kit
- Whistle to signal for help
- Dust mask, to help filter contaminated air
- Moist towelettes and garbage bags for personal sanitation
- Manual can opener for food
- Small containers of chlorine bleach and an eye dropper to use as disinfectant
Family Promise will assemble the kits and provide them to families, if needed, along with training for how best to stay safe in the event of a storm. Thank you for helping Family Promise prepare, as you prepare for the upcoming season. Donations can be left in the Parish Hall.
