First Presbyterian is hosting a community wide drive of items to be passed out at the Evanston Produce Mobile at the “SNAP GAP” booth/table, for these next few weeks. It turns out that people receiving SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits cannot purchase these items with their SNAP benefits. Every month different items are collected for distribution. First Pres has been asked to collect the following: Full sized toothpaste (Not travel sized), packaged toothbrushes, and full sized Dove Soap Bars (we are requesting only Dove brand). Items can come in larger amounts, as long as they can be divided out and still stay wrapped in the original packaging.
Please drop these items off at the church by the front desk or our drive through donation on April 2 between 10am -12pm in the parking lot.
You can also purchase items from the Interfaith Action Amazon Smile page or another online seller and have them delivered to:
