Women’s Ministry Sponsors Panty Drive for Kenyan Girls

The Women’s Ministry is collecting panties for girls’ schools in rural Kenya. There are two schools in which 11 sponsored girls are placed — Kimngorom Girls Secondary School and
St. Joseph Girls Secondary School. The group going to Kenya in June is taking enough cotton panties to provide at least one pair for every girl in the boarding schools—about 770 girls. Also, special gifts will be taken for our sponsored girls.

Women's Ministry Panty Drive goal:
The FBCD Women's Ministry goal is 300 pairs of good quality cotton briefs (not bikinis) without lace trim. Bright colors and patterns are fine (not movie or cartoon themes). The girls range in age from 8 to 18. Sizes are girls 12 to 14 and women’s 5 to 6. At this time, there is more need for the larger sizes, than the smallest sizes. Please give donations to Ann Smith, Liz Hackney, Jan Pratt or church office staff by the deadline: Sunday, June 5.

Please help provide the Kenyan girls in this school with good quality cotton underwear.
