We will be seeking to prepare 1,000+ snack packages AND 1,000+ hygiene kits for our local homeless community in support of Word on the Street ministry (https://www.facebook.com/wots4homeless/?fref=ts) and some other local ministries that reach the less resourced in our area. This year OMMA will again be partnering with Avalon Church (http://www.avalonchurch.org), and other community groups including the Avalon Park Foundation, the Rotary Club of Avalon Park, Encore at Avalon Park and Championship Martial Arts in Avalon Park!
If you feel led to supply any of the items below to help fill care packages or items for the hygiene kits for our area homeless men, women and children, please bring them to OMMA or leave them at the Avalon Church office (there may be other collection locations in the community as well). We hope to collect enough items for at least 1,000 of each.
Snack Bag Items needed:
Packages of Cheese Crackers (Austin brand) (we now have all of these!), Small Applesauce/Fruit cups, Chewy Granola Bars, Chocolate Pudding cups (we now have all of these!), Small Vienna Sausages (pop-top), Chicken ramen noodles cups (Styrofoam cups – not the sleeve kind) (we now have all of these!), Juice pouch drinks (Aldi’s brand work best), Gallon sized Ziploc bags (we now have all of these!)
