And it’s neck and neck!
With only a few more days to bring in toothbrushes for El Salvador, the race is tightening between children sized and adult sized brushes collected so far.
With the addition of the brushes that were donated last Sunday (January 25) and some that came into the office early this week the count now stands at:
- 374 children’s toothbrushes and
- 399 adult toothbrushes
Several generous donations have come from people asking their dentists to consider donating. Janet is happily and promptly writing thank you notes for each of these generous contributions. It never hurts to ask! So keep asking and keep bringing in toothbrushes during this last week of our collection drive.
After a final count on Sunday, February 1st, the toothbrushes will be packed up and taken early that first week of February to a central collecting point for other medical and hygiene supplies also going to El Salvador with the Synod Mission of Healing.
A simple thing like a toothbrush can make a big impact in a child or adult’s life- the simple kindness and generosity of this St. Peter congregation continues to impact the lives of our brothers and sisters in El Salvador. Thank you! Gracias a Dios!
