TACOS from Nokomis, IL, at MMDC #22

On the last Saturday in February we had the TACOS from Nokomis, IL. This youth group’s acronym stands for Teens About Christ Our Savior. Both senior and junior high students were among the 9 volunteers and 3 adults that packed PDKs for 3 hours. They completed 27 boxes for a total of 651 Personal Dignity Kits.

MMDC recycles all of the cardboard boxes that supplies come in, so all of the boxes (from toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, soap, razors, toothbrushes, etc.) have to be flattened to so they take up less space. 

 The boxes were rolled out to the warehouse and placed on a pallet.

Those pallets are then raised with a forklift and stored in the warehouse on shelves.

 Before each load goes out to those in need, it is blessed.

 So we prayed over the PDKs for those who will receive them and for those who assembled them.

Next Carl showed them how to shrink wrap the pallet of 28 boxes.
 And then a couple of the guys helped.
