Recently, C.H.A.R.M. was presented with a new ministry opportunity at the Carole Young Women's Unit in Dickinson. Between 60 and 70 women each month go without proper hygiene items. The State does not provide them with items we would consider as essentials like toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo & conditioner. If their families cannot provide those items for them through the unit commissary, these women simply go without. They are labeled as "Indigent".
Kaye was asked if C.H.A.R.M. could step in and provide these much needed items on a regular basis and without hesitation she responded as she sensed the Lord would if the request was made of Him. Kaye & David will be delivering the first batch of items for 70 women this week. A good portion of the items were provided by another ministry and the Tricketts will be shopping for the rest.
If you know of someone who has connections with a retailer or wholesaler who carries such products and you believe they might be interested in helping to supply this need, please contact them on behalf of C.H.A.R.M. or direct us to do so. As you can imagine, if C.H.A.R.M. has to purchase these items on a regular basis through a retailer our limited budget will be deleted quickly.
If you would like to help provide for this need personally, we would welcome you to designate your donation as "Indigent". We will see that your funds are used appropriately.
Can you imagine how God will use these simple gifts to open the hearts and souls
of these needy women? To God be the Glory!
