Members of the World Mission Society Church of God made “stay healthy” kits to donate to the local community.
“Since we’re not able to gather like before, we haven’t seen many of our friends and family in the community, so we decided to do something nice for them to not feel as alone,” said Alejandra Garcia, volunteer service coordinator at the church.
Each kit contained items to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, such as masks, hand sanitizers, alcohol sprays, soap and wipes.
“(We wanted to) give them something that they will use because these (supplies) are something that is very needed through this health crisis,” Garcia added.
Some of the church members who put together these kits lost their jobs or were furloughed due to the pandemic, so they decided to use the free time they had to do something encouraging, according to Garcia.
“During these times, it’s very encouraging to see that people care for you despite the negative things happening with this pandemic going on and people losing their jobs,” Garcia said. “Acts of kindness are very encouraging during these unprecedented times, so it was great to be able to do an activity like this for the community we love.”
