While thinking about Memorial Day at the end of the month, we think about those that have served and are serving our country. We are asking you and your child to shop for a few items to add to care packages that will be sent to our troops through Operation Shoebox. Donate whatever you can. There will be collection boxes in each of the Church School Classrooms for these items. We encourage you to allow your child to be a part of this purchase and let them thoughtfully consider (with your help and budget) what they will be purchasing.
Items Needed at This Time:
- Boxes of hot chocolate (individual packets)
- Small cans of tuna with pop-tops
- Small cans of fruit with pop-tops
- Microwave popcorn – individual bags
- Athletic socks
- Batteries – all sizes
- Small boxes of cereal
- Small bags of trail mix, peanuts, pretzels
- Lip balm
- Sun block
- Moist wipes
- Bug spray – non-aerosol
- Bars of soap
- Small bottles of shampoo
- Deodorant – non-aerosol
- Powdered drink mixes
- Cereal/Snack/Granola bars
- Instant oatmeal – individual packets
On May 20th, we will also be making cards for the Troops.
Please make sure your child attends Sunday School on this day to be a part of this project.
