Service Project, Saturday, October 9th

This is a great Service and Missionary Opportunity!  
I thought I'd include an email that we sent out to our neighbors and school friends.  I've had a lot of good conversations about it already.  Our ward's goal is 500 Deodorants.  Another ward needed some help with toothbrushes, so I added that to my email too.  Get excited to get others involved in this project. 

Goal:  500
Where we are now:  300

Sample Email that you could send:

Our family is helping our church to collect items for a Personal Hygiene Kit to donate to AVDA, a local woman's shelter, and we could use some help.

Have any extras around your house?
Have a dollar or two for a good cause?

500 Deodorants trial size or regular
1000 toothbrushes (individually wrapped)
500 toothpaste tubes (mini or regular)
by Saturday, October 9th, 2010.

You can find us at ________ on ________ Mornings, or the ___________ on Friday's.  

Thanks in advance,
_______ and family

   So now I am asking you all to have faith too and take that step out into your neighborhoods to get donations for this service project.  Also to contact your visiting teaching sisters who have not had an opportunity to participate in this activity which is a service to the sisters of the community.  It is such a worthy cause.

   Any donations you get can be put into a tithing envelope with a tithing slip – you will need to put the donation on the “Other” line and be sure to put next to “Other” “RS Service Pjt” so the money will go into the right bucket and be available to pay for the deodorants that have been ordered. (through a discount website)

   I am already going back out into the neighborhood to more neighbors and I am confident that with the Lords direction that we will find the donations we need. 

   I hope you are excited about taking on this wonderful opportunity and will help us out.

  Thanks for all you do.  You are the BEST!

Sister Sandy S.
