Our kids are back and we want them to know our parish is thinking about them! Besides the religious items the parish includes, we are looking for things like: popcorn packets, hot cereal packets, candy, granola bars, gum, tic tacs, hot chocolate packets, instant apple cider packets, fruit roll ups, kraft mac and cheese bowls, ramen noodles, non-scented toiletry items -- you get the idea -- homemade individually wrapped brownies and bar cookies (something that won't break) are also VERY welcome and we definitely want some of these!
We need for you to bring about 75 of each item. Note what you are bringing when you sign up so that others can see! We will send out an email by Sept. 13 with the exact number of items needed once we see how many people have signed up to participate!
I will get the shipping boxes. I will also have an enclosure that will have room for those in attendance to jot some personal notes to those kids they know!
To enroll your son or daughter in the 2019-2020 program, please send a check for $37 made out to St. Aloysius to defray the cost of the mailing of the packages no later than September 13, along with their name/college address. THE FEE OF $37 COVERS BOTH MAILINGS! Please do not email me - send your check to register with this info! Our program this year will include two mailings and in addition, Youth Ministry will send a card twice. If your student is international, you are welcome to come join us, provide treats and take the package to mail on your own - we do not need to collect $37.
Looking forward to seeing you!
