Strong churches with a bold commitment to the Great Commission

Hiker Supplies for Trail Days 2014

March - April

Hundreds of hikers and bikers from all over the world travel along the Appalachian Trail each year, which gives nearby SBC of Virginia churches an opportunity to minister to them. Help us reach out to these bikers and hikers by sending supplies they greatly need. As the churches minister to their needs, doors of opportunity are opened to share the Gospel.

Since these items will be carried in their backpacks, please think light and small! The churches will display bins of items for the hikers to choose what they need. Below is a list of items that are needed (do not make packets—just send the supplies in bulk):

  • Nail clippers
  • Pens
  • Notepads (small)
  • Cotton balls
  • Clothes pins
  • Contact solution
  • Hand sanitizer (small)
  • Nail files
  • Toothbrushes
  • Toothpaste
  • Lip balm
  • Insect repellant
  • Travel tissue packs
  • Bandanas
  • Dental floss
  • Liquid antibacterial soap (small)
  • Shampoo
  • Baby powder
