College Care Packages
It’s that time of year again! EKLC college students are preparing for
end-of-semester finals. Please bring college-friendly goodies and treats to
help these people know that we are praying for them and they are loved.
Examples of care package goodies include: home baked cookies or brownies,
ramen noodles, easy mac packets, oatmeal packets, microwave popcorn, candy,
granola bars, pop tarts, gum, tea or coffee bags, or anything you can think
of! Non food items might include Chapstick, pens or pencils, or little
bottles of hand sanitizer. Let your imagination run wild - what might you
like to use while you are studying? We will also need shoe boxes, newspaper
and brown paper bags for packing/shipping. We will collect items through Easter Sunday. There are 28 packages
to pack this spring.
