JACKSON, MS (WLBT) – A Jackson church is continuing Haiti relief efforts by collecting the everyday items earthquake victims need.
Anderson United Methodist Church is sponsoring a drive to gather things to make health kits.
Organizers are asking the public to donate various articles for the kits.
They want hand towels, soap, combs, bandages, nail clippers, files and plastic zip lock bags to hold the items.
The kits will be sent to the United Methodist Committee on Relief's Distribution Center in Louisiana then on to the people of Haiti.
"We've all seen the devastation. We've all wondered what is it that I can do as an individual? If you don't have money to give or if you're sort of skeptical of giving money, well this is an opportunity to give those items that the people will be able to use on a daily basis," said Vangela Wade Chairperson of Communications Ministry.
You can drop off the items in Anderson's lobby through March 14th.
The lobby will be open on Sunday's through 1:30pm and throughout the week from 9:30a.m through 5 p.m.
