This month we will be gathering items for care packages for Elim's college students so they can receive them in the mail in early February. This time was chosen because most of them are starting a new semester or quarter and have just returned from spending time with family during the holidays. They are probably feeling a little homesick and overwhelmed with new classes. Can you think of a better time to send them a little LOVE!? After all, isn’t Valentine’s Day when we remind those we truly care about how important they are to us?
All donations can be put in the box in the Welcome Area or dropped off at the church office by January 29. Monetary donations are always appreciated to fill in items that are needed and shipping costs (submit money to Elim, designate for care packages for it to show up on your giving statement) .
Thank you to all of you for your support of this ministry to our college youth!
If you have a college student in your household, please send their mailing address to the office (email@example.com / 762-4081).
