There are approximately 1,000 men and women in the Richmond City Justice Center – RCJC. Personal hygiene items are expensive and limited for many residents. We’d like to supply over half of their GET CLEAN bags for every resident of the RCJC this holiday season in partnership with Into the Neighborhood. Every bag will contain personal hygiene items that are most asked for and needed by the residents. NOTE: If you shop at the Dollar Store - each bag can be made for under $7!
Full Size Solid Antiperspirant (NOT just deodorant, please)
Full Size Bar Soap
12-20 oz Shampoo 2 in 1 – Shampoo and Conditioner
12-20 oz Lotion
6-10 oz Toothpaste
A note of encouragement and/or scripture on a note card
2 stamped envelopes
No items can contain metal lids or packaging
Only basic scents
NO travel/hotel sizes or BULK Costco/Sam's Club Sizes
NO OTHER ITEMS can be included in the bags
Bags and shopping lists will be available in The Lobby of The Byrd November 6 & 13. You can fill bags with set items or donate individual items and our student ministry will assemble complete bags to be donated to the RCJC. ALL ITEMS MUST BE DROPPED OFF NOVEMBER 20 & 27.
If you're looking for more ways to get involved in some type of Prison Ministry, we partner with an organization called Virginia Saints. They're looking for dedicated men who can share the gospel and play softball! Contact Joaquin Martinez for more information.
