October 8 – 10
The Mountain View Police Department (MVPD) will be participating for the first time in the 2nd Annual Faith and Blue Weekend from October 8th -10th. This initiative is designed to increase law enforcement communication with the community through houses of worship. MVPD is requesting community donations of items needed to complete hygiene kits for department staff to donate to those in need. The collection drive will go until October 6th. A group of community member volunteers and MVPD personnel will help assemble the kits together at 9:00 am Saturday, October 9th. We would love for members of LAUMC to show up and be a part of the packing event at 1000 Villa Street in the MVPD parking lot. There will also be compassion card making activities for children to participate. If you, or someone you know, would like to donate to this initiative, the following items are needed. Or, an Amazon Wish list has been created to allow for direct purchase and shipping to the department of hygiene kit items. Items can be dropped off at MVPD.
Hygiene Kit Items Requested:
Disposable Razors, Facemasks (Disposable), Band-Aids, Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Granola or energy bar, combos, brushes, Chapstick, Juice box or small bottles of water, Bar Soap/Body Wash, Lotion (travel or small size), Shampoo (travel or small size), Kleenex pack, Gallon sized ziplock bags, socks, and underwear for men and women, feminine hygiene products.
