Back Pack needs


FCC Missions Ministry, in partnership with Community Partners in Action, is supporting our Back Pack program for the 3rd straight year. The program provides backpacks of toiletries for women being released from prison. Often leaving York Correctional Institution with little or nothing, these women have few resources and many needs. The Missions Ministry is asking for contributions of toiletries (or money, of course) to fill 40 backpacks for 40 women. Suggested items include:

  • deodorant
  • lotion, petroleum jelly
  • shampoo, moisturizer
  • sanitary supplies
  • hairbrush, comb, picks
  • toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, dental floss
  • soap, shower gel
  • tweezers
  • makeup: eye liner, mascara, lip gloss
  • nail clippers, emery boards
  • small mirror
  • small packs facial tissue
  • bath towel, wash cloth
  • white sweat socks
