College Student Care Kits

Gloria Dei will send care packages of snacks and prayers to our students in higher education. The high school youth group (GDYG) will pack the boxes as part of their service project on Wednesday, October 23. We will mail them the next day.

If you would like your student to receive a box, please fill out this form, even if it is the same address as last year. We will only be sending to those whose names/addresses we receive here. For planning purposes, addresses must be received by Sunday, October 20.

We would love your help with donations to put in the boxes. Please consider donating:

Homemade treats: (Special K bars, chocolate chip cookies, trail mix, rice-crispy treats, brownies, protein based trail mix for our health-kick kids...etc)
Granola/breakfast bars
Dried Fruit in individual packages
Fruit Snacks
Ramen Noodles
Crystal Light Water flavor packets, hot chocolate packets
Packs of Gum
Cross pins or necklaces, stickers, etc...
Flash drives
Chapstick
Hand sanitizer, Hand lotion, Kleenex packets
Anything else students would enjoy in a care package

Please bring the items to D.J.'s office by 4pm on Tuesday, October 22.

We also need help with postage costs. Each box costs approximately $10 to ship.

If you are Thrivent members, Carol can help you apply for an Action Team Grant of $250 to help cover the costs. It takes about 5 minutes to fill out the form online.

If any of you would like to help with packing on the evening of Wednesday, October 23 or have questions, contact D.J. Chatelaine.
