College Student Care Packages The GYM team will be assembling midterm care packages for our college students, and we need your help! Please consider donating snacks, gift cards, or small pieces of decoration–postcards and stickers are great, and so are command strips and glue dots! We have 20-22 college students we are connected with. Additionally, if you can stay after worship on October 23 to help assemble boxes, that would be greatly appreciated!
Sponsors of college students–feel free to include a special note or gift for your student!
