Thank you for limiting your generosity to the items listed. Due to strict regulations some countries have on the expiration date of toothpaste, MCC no longer asks for toothpaste to be donated with the kit. Instead, we will provide toothpaste with the kits when they ship from our warehouse.
Place contents in a box or bag and deliver to an MCC drop-off location. The kit will be re-packed in a new 20-litre plastic pail with lid.
