A Small Box of Our Love and Prayers
There’s nothing like receiving good ol’ snail mail! Students enjoy receiving care packages from home as a little reminder that they are loved. Our church family has participated in our College Care Package ministry for many years. If you were a college student, or have raised a college student in this church family, then you know how meaningful our care package ministry is for all those who receive. Our care packages are packed by our Youth Family and include study supplies, snacks, handwritten notes and best of all… homemade treats donated by members of FBG’s congregation. This ministry helps us to maintain contact with our college students, remind them of our prayers during this stressful time of the year, and send our love and care to them while they are away from home.
We ask that our church family donate non-perishable snacks and treats, as well as baked sweets! Our college students love Rice Krispy® treats, pretzels, chips, gum, candy/suckers (not chocolate), fruit snacks, and popcorn. Please be sure these are individually wrapped items, so they can be divided up for care packages. Non-perishable snacks and treats are due by Sunday, November 3.
We can only send care packages to those students for whom we have an address!
Please visit https://goo.gl/forms/smwhcVSaTpHc5R1g2 to submit your college students’ mailing address or email it to Sarah Carter at firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not want to leave anyone out, so please be sure we have your college student on file.
Please visit https://goo.gl/forms/8cZGN2l55ROFjnOr2 to sign up to donate homemade treats for our college care packages. All homemade goodies are due on Sunday, December 1. Please divide your treats into sealable Ziploc® bags with 2-4 items per bag.
