Personal Essentials Ministry

Help Restore Human Dignity

Homeless man

What if you had to choose between buying food or toilet paper?

For many in our community, affording even the most basic personal hygiene products is a struggle. Our Personal Essentials Ministry, in partnership with Circle of Concern Food Pantry, offers basic personal care items that Food Stamps won’t cover to 600+ families each month.

Here’s what we collect and provide to families:

  • Toilet paper – 3,600 rolls/month
  • Shampoo – 600 bottles/month
  • Tampons (36 count) – 360 boxes/month
  • Razors (4 pack) – 600/month
  • Shaving cream – 600 cans/month

We depend on monthly donations of the above items to meet the needs of struggling people in our community! Please pick up extras of these products while shopping for yourself, or make a financial donation online (please select Personal Essentials from the dropdown menu) or by check (write "personal essentials" in the memo line). All financial donations are tax deductible. 

Where to Donate

Bring your items to the church during regular business hours or any worship service. Our address is:

        Manchester United Methodist Church

        129 Woods Mill Rd.

        Manchester, MO 63021

        636-394-7506

Or, make a financial contribution (please select Personal Essentials from the dropdown menu).

Giving to this ministry helps restore basic human dignity. Thank you for making a difference!
