Nazarenes around the world, including members of New Life Community Church of the Nazarene, put crisis care kits together for fast disaster response. Thousands of these kits are made, stored, and distributed around the world each year.


Please follow the instruction sheet for what goes into each kit, as well as for shipping information. Due to Customs regulations, it’s essential that we know the contents of each kit so as not to deter a shipment.


Gather new items in quantities listed below. Assemble crisis care kits and seal in Ziploc bags. Include only those items listed below. Set the kits in groups of six (6) to determine the number of banana boxes needed.


Pack these items into a clear 2-gallon OR 2.5-gallon plastic Ziploc bag and seal

Crisis Care Kits for Those in Need


Make Note of Upcoming Events at

New Life Community Church of the Nazarene

  • 1 medium-size bottle of shampoo (12-18 ounces), please tape flip-tops closed

  • 2 bars of soap (bath size or larger)

  • 1 medium toothpaste (4.0-6.4 ounces)

  • 3 toothbrushes (in original packaging)

  • 1 box of Band-Aids (30 or more)

  • 1 fingernail clipper

  • 1 sturdy hair comb

  • 2 hand towels

  • 4 pocket-size packages of facial tissue

  • 1 Beanie Baby-size stuffed toy

Obtain the banana boxes from your local grocery store. Please ship crisis care

kits solely in banana boxes, as they provide uniformity, eliminating wasted space

in shipping.


Cut the heavy brown paper (usually found in the banana box) in half and place inside the bottom of the box. Tape the other half over the hole in the lid. (Plain cardboard may be used in the same way if your banana boxes are missing the paper.)


Fill each box with exactly six (6) crisis care kits.


Do not insert money or literature (including anything with the church’s name on it, notes, etc.) in the kits or banana boxes.


Using strong packing tape, cover all holes in the top and the bottom of the box. Then tape the box securely shut. Please leave box handles open; this makes it easier to load and unload.


When addressing the box, please put the name and address of the church (or individual donor) on the box in the “From” section and the address of the warehouse in the “To” section.


Do not wrap banana boxes in brown paper or contact paper or put filled banana boxes inside another box.
