Ditty Bags

Perhaps our most popular and well-known ministry is providing seafarers with ditty bags. 

What's a Ditty Bag? "a sailor's cloth bag for personal belongings and/or tools." 

We distribute to seafarers all year round, but especially during the Christmas Season.  

What goes in our ditty bags?

Anything seafarers find useful: toiletries, mending kits, various smaller articles of clothing, first aid kits, etc.   Ditty bags make great service projects for youth groups or adult ministries in your church.  Get involved in a ministry that seafarers greatly appreciate!

Seafarer's Knit Caps:

Seafarers often come to our shores from much warmer climates and are inadequately prepared to deal with the harsh New England winter weather. You can help by knitting and/or donating knit caps.
