If this is your first time as a college parent, Touching Lives in College (TLC) is a ministry of FUMC Allen that reaches out to our college students while they are in school. Typically, we send two care packages a year (fall and spring) and two notes with gift cards (near exam time).
Whether your student is living in a dorm, an apartment, or at home, we would love for you to participate!
Send us your student’s address
First, as you get your student settled, please take a moment to update the Google doc with their TLC College Address and some other information that will help us stay in contact with your student. We will need new addresses for everyone because we start a new spreadsheet every year, so even if your student’s address hasn’t changed, it needs to be re-entered.
Mark Your Calendars
On Tuesday, September 29, at 7:00pm, we are tentatively scheduled to come together in the Youth Wing (W257) for our first care package assembly!
If you are able, please consider bringing a donation for the boxes. Some ideas are:
- Post It Notes
- Highlighters, pens or pencils
- Individual packages of chips or snacks
- Pocket sizes Kleenex
- Mini-hand sanitizer or Wet Wipes
- 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.
TLC Packaging is a LEVEL YELLOW EVENT
If you have any questions, please contact Susan Hale.
