St. John: Refugee Services of Texas

As we enter into the Christmas season, we all have the opportunity to demonstrate the hope given to us by the gospel and share the love of God who doesn’t simply provide, but is extravagant in His love for us. As we rejoice in the generosity our Heavenly Father has shown us, we have the ability to be a reflection of that immense kindness through our benevolence.

By partnering with Refugee Services of Texas, you can provide hygiene kits for newly arriving refugees and immigrants! These kits will go directly to refugees and will help meet their most basic needs. Items needed include full-sized shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, body wash, razors, feminine pads, shaving cream, hair brushes/combs, lotion, and facial tissues placed in two-gallon Ziploc bags. You can also include cards with words of encouragement or drawings done by your kiddos! 

Kits can be dropped off at the St. John Campus before or after services from Sunday, November 13 through December 11.

Please note, hygiene kits are not donations to The Austin Stone and are not eligible for inclusion in giving statements of charitable donations to the church.
