Here is a list of items that you can donate to SCM that we will send to Jordan, either with a mission or with people we know that are traveling there over the next couple months. We are trying to make up little packages of toys, personal care items, etc. in plastic zip lock baggies. For example, a packet for a little girl might have some barrettes or hair clips, children’s nail polish, a hair scrunchie, stickers, and lip gloss. A lot of the items we are in need of, especially kids toys can be found at garage sales or the dollar stores. Please keep in mind that the items must be washed and clean, no used clothing or blankets can be accepted.
- Travel size toothpaste
- Adult and children size toothbrushes
- Disposable razors (not for the kids, but they are needed!)
- Travel size shampoos
- Neosporin (or similar antibacterial ointment) in small tubes
- Vaseline in small tubes
- Hair clips, scrunchies, barrettes for little girls, lip gloss, sunglasses
- Small stuffed animals
- Small or mini containers of Play Dough (these were reported to be on sale at a dollar store for $1 for a 4 pack of small cans)
- Coloring books, small packages of crayons (we don’t need the 64 color pack, but the smaller ones like the 8 or 10 pack is perfect), color pencils, fun pencil sharpeners
- Face paints and finger paints
- Small toy cars, robots, animals, etc
- Vitamins (please check to make sure they don’t have gelatin in them)
These items can be sent to our office in Seattle and we will get them to Jordan. Call us with any questions about what to donate, and remember, we can always take cash donations over the website and we will buy the items we need.
