Does it cost to attend?

There is no cost to attend this event. We would still ask that you register as there is only limited space. You can register here www.hygienekits.org

There is a registration fee of $5 to reserve your spot at this event. Although we are a nonprofit organization, Hygiene Kit events take a considerable amount of preparation, time and expense to host. The reason for the registration fee is to: 1) offset some of the costs in hosting the event — that costs International Aid tens of thousands of dollars — with overhead, staff involvement and the purchased components for the kits; and 2) because there is limited space for the participants, we want to ensure that people will show up even after registering, which is more likely to happen when people invest something toward participation. We greatly value your desire to partner with International Aid. If you have concerns with the registration fee, please contact kits@internationalaid.org. You can register here: www.hygienekits.org

Is this a family-friendly event?

Absolutely! Children really love packing the kits, and it’s a great opportunity for the entire family to participate in mission work together. However, we do not provide childcare. So any small children will be the parents’ responsibility to keep an eye on them.

How long do I participate for?

Each session is for a period of 2 hours, but the actual packing is less so that we have time for instructions and prayer at the end of each session.

What should I wear?

Closed-toe shoes are required in order to prevent injury when working in a warehouse around pallets and heavy objects. We want your feet to be protected. We recommend wearing comfortable clothes, as it does get quite warm while packing. T-shirts and jeans are suggested.

How many Hygiene Kits is International Aid hoping to pack at the event?

It is our goal to pack 25,000 kits by the end of the event.

How are the Hygiene Kits going to be used to help people in need?

The kits packed during this event are designated to be used to replenish our hygiene kit inventory for disaster relief.

The Hygiene Kits packed during this event will fill the need of International Aid’s largest domestic partner, serving communities out west.
