MARQUETTE - Members of local Boy Scout Troop 302 invite the community to support a new service project for Room at the Inn.
Members of the troop will be at St. Michael's Church in Marquette before and after the masses this weekend. They will be collecting the following items to make 25-50 personal hygiene kits for the Room at the Inn guests: Band-Aids, gauze, toothpaste, toothbrushes, trial-size shampoo, soap, reusable grocery style bags and washcloths.
When the shelter is back in operation in September these will make a great gift to those in need. Donations can be dropped off any time at St. Michaels Church in Marquette as well.
For more information, to donate or to volunteer to assemble the kits, call Ian Parkkonen at 360-1590.
