Hal and Lynn Spence and visiting student Sydney Butterfield show examples of three completed hygiene kits that have been sent to the nation’s southern border from Homer. On July 22, 2019, the Spences and Butterfield dropped by 24 completed kits to Grace Ridge Brewery in Homer, Alaska. The kits are distributed by the United Methodist Committee on Relief to transition centers. Monetary donations, items for kits and assembled kits are still being accepted to make a difference at the border. They can be dropped by Grace Ridge Brewing or Homer United Methodist Church. More than 200 kits have been sent from Homer. Another event to help assemble additional kits will be held later in September. (Photo by Sherry Stead)
