Hurricane Donation Drive
First Baptist Church, Laurel, through its Ready Church Project, and the City of Laurel have organized a collection drive to be held on October 7, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., to benefit hurricane victims. Monetary donations will support the purchase of Crisis Support Buckets, in coordination with the Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware, for victims in Florida and Texas. Pet monetary donations will support the HOPE Animal Crisis Response (877-HOPE-K9s). Participants may also donate materials for health/hygiene kits to be distributed as needed. Include in a two gallon zip-lock bag (whatever size the items will fit into is fine) or a 14 x 12 drawstring, cloth bag, the following items: A large bath towel, large comb (no rat tail combs), wash cloth, shampoo (full size), toothbrush (adult), soap (full size bar), toothpaste (large) and deodorant.
