Blessing Boxes Service Project February 28, 2013

Date: February 28, 2013

Location: Sioux Falls Seminary

Sarah Stenson, of the Luther House of Study, has a friend whose son is currently serving in Afghanistan. We as the larger seminary community are partnering with the Luther House to put together 'Blessing Boxes' to send them! There are 35 soldiers in the unit to whom we are sending the boxes so the goal is to pack at least that many. Donations will be collected February 25th-27th in room 106 (right across from Sheryl's desk), and there will be a packing party on the 28th at 6:30 p.m. If your family, Sunday school class, or youth group would like to sponsor a box we would love the contribution! Feel free to be creative with the items to send. If you would like to send a personal note, feel free to do that as well. Healthy snacks are requested, but please nothing perishable or melty (although any soldier would probably appreciate homemade cookies). The flat rate shipping cost of $11.35 per box is also needed. If you would like to give a financial contribution see Sheryl Sletten at the administration desk.

Some items that are accepted, but not limited to, include: Beef jerky, protein bars, drink mixes (such as Crystal Light packets), dried fruit, trail mix, cookies, books, magazines, etc.
