It was a dark and rainy evening on Feb. 19, when a good number of brave Herold Mennonite folks came out to assemble hygiene kits. First, we enjoyed delicious finger goods so we would have the energy to work. There were several work stations: preparing the cords for the cloth bags, putting the cords in the bags, then filling the bags with the hygiene items. The children had enjoyed collecting bars of soap on Sunday mornings during the month before this event. Several children helped assemble the bags. When the fun evening came to an end, we had filled 166 kits to send to MCC.
