Members of the Baha’i Faith from Champaign and Clark counties deliver 40 bags of personal items to the Caring Kitchen on Feb. 26. The contents of each bag are tailored to the specific needs of a man, woman, boy or girl. Donations include handmade blankets for infants. The bags contain basic items, including socks, soap, a toothbrush and toothpaste, shampoo, comb and, for children, coloring books, crayons and a small toy or stuffed animal. A donation also was made to the Backpack Program, a partnership between the Caring Kitchen and Urbana Schools.
