Oct. 3, 2017 Operation Care Package
Last evening, members of Operation Care Package met to pack care packages for twelve college students. This box included lots of fall treats, Halloween decorations, and several hand crafted items.
Operation Care Package is part of Christ Church Coronado's Youth and Family Ministry. Parishioners and community members are invited to join Operation Care Package if they have any college students in their lives. Box recipients have been children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and even family friends! Each packer brings one type of item for all of the boxes. Then we gather together to distribute the items to all of the boxes and talk about all of the students who will be receiving them. Occassionally, we even have people join in on the packing who don't have someone who needs a box.
A partner ministry also contributes items to the care packages. We have had the Middle School Youth Group pack monster mix, the Christ Church Knitters knitted scarves in school colors, Pastoral Care provided coloring books and colored pencils, and many, many more...
Our next packing event will be in January. If you, or someone you know, would like to be part of this program, please contact Charlette Preslar, Director of Youth and Family Ministry, firstname.lastname@example.org.
