DS-WA MGOCSM - Houston Spring Service Project 2015

On March 22, 2015, St. Thomas Houston MGOCSM, in collaboration with Balika Bala Samajam, hosted the 2015 Hygiene Kit Service Project. The supplies assembled would be sent to IOCC, International Orthodox Christian Charity Organization, which will then be distributed overseas to countries that are need of the basic supplies we use everyday. These supplies will be beneficial as an emergency hygiene kit in the event of a natural disaster. It was a blessing and an amazing experience to assemble the hygiene kits which included: bars of soap, hand towels, washcloths, nail files, toothbrushes, combs, and bandages. Often, we take for granted that we have the privilege to have these supplies at our disposal, while many around the world do not have any access to these basic necessities. We also wanted to convey our condolences and prayers to Rev. Fr. Matthew Baker's family due to his passing, so we had tables set up to make cards and send to them. Altogether, it was blessed event that brought the older and younger students together in unity and fellowship while serving the needs of others.
