Hygiene Drive Help Wanted!

LCC’s own Jackson Dailey and his friend Jenna Ham are Senior students at St. Petersburg Collegiate High School, and they have teamed up to complete their final Senior Capstone Project. In partnership with our church, they have chosen to host a hygiene drive to benefit the St. Petersburg Free Clinic.

Their Senior Capstone Project requires them to design and implement a service project that will benefit the St. Petersburg community. St. Pete Free Clinic’s (SPFC’s) programs support health equity by providing nutritious food for those who need it, increasing access to healthcare and dental care, and increasing access to housing for those experiencing housing insecurity and substance abuse challenges. When asked how the students could best help in their efforts, SPFC indicated that what they really could use is a hygiene drive.

Jackson is asking our church to help him collect items for this project starting on Sunday, March 10 until Sunday, March 24 (Palm Sunday). We will have collection boxes labeled with the St. Petersburg Free Clinic located in the narthex to collect the following items:

 Gallon sized zip-lock bags
 Bar soap
 Body wipes
 Deodorant for men and women
 First Aid travel size kits
 Travel size toothpaste

Additional items to be accepted include: Backpacks and flip flops (all sizes) We appreciate your assistance to help make this hygiene drive a successful one. You may recall that Griffin Franzese hosted a similar hygiene drive as part of the requirements for his Eagle Scout honor several years ago. That was a very successful endeavor during the Pandemic, and we are confident that LCC and Jackson will have similar success.
