On Monday, March 2, at 7:00pm, FUMC Allen’s college student support team, Touching Lives in College, comes together in the Children’s Wing for our care package assembly for the spring!
If this is your first time as a college parent, TLC is an FUMC Allen care group that shares love and support with our college students while they are in school. We send two care packages a year–fall and spring–and two notes with gift cards near exam time. We would love for you to participate!
After you get your student settled this fall, please take a moment to update/add his/her name to the 2020 TLC Mailing Address list, which provides us with the necessary information that will help us stay in contact with your student. Please be sure to enter all information requested on the form before Wednesday, February 26.
If you are able, please help us bringing a donation for the boxes. Some ideas include:
- Post It notes
- Highlighters, pens or pencils
- Individual packages of chips or snacks
- Instant oatmeal, Mac ‘n’ Cheese, etc…
- Pocket sizes tissues
- Anything else that you think a college student might enjoy!
Please avoid chocolate for this mailing. It will melt!
We will also collect $5 Subway or Starbucks gift cards to be mailed a little later in the semester so if you can donate one or two of those, please pass them on to Susan Hale.
