Kentucky Baptists are again participating with Baptist Global Response this year to provide hospice care buckets to help families care for those with HIV/AIDS. Buckets will be collected at the Kentucky Baptist Convention Annual Meeting, Nov. 15, 2016, at Florence Baptist Church.
Baptist Global Response has researched and worked with partner organizations to determine the best resources to include in these kits. For uniformity in packing and shipping, as well as customs approval in recipient countries, please only provide completed kits that match the detailed list. Varying kits and materials may delay shipments and, in some cases, may mean that the kits will not be accepted into a country.
One kit costs between $80 to $100, plus shipping costs. A detailed shopping list is provided and has been revised from prior years. All kits must include all of the requested items. Some items listed are available in bulk or are only available in quantities larger than needed. For example, if after competing five kits, you have 10 extra packs of straws, include all extras in a separate box marked "EXTRAS."
Purchase new items and, when stated, use only the brands included on the shopping list. Please refrain from adding cards, letters, photos, directories, bulletins, or any other items that are not specifically identified in the instructions. Good intentions can inadvertently cause delays with customs or compromise the safety of our partners living in the field.
