MILITARY CARE PACKAGE INITIATIVE

St. Paul's Lutheran Church & School will be putting together care packages for Chaplain Seifert to give out to the military service men and women. Chaplain Seifert and his staff will be handing these out one at a time and using them to initiate conversation with the service men and women in the hopes of building relationships, sharing the love of Christ through care packages, and ultimately, sharing Christ. 

THREE OPTIONS FOR DOING THIS:

  1. Take a box or more than one, fill it with some suggested supplies, and return the boxes. 

  2. Purchase supplies and deliver them to Pastor's office, and the boxes will be assembled at a later time.

  3. Donate money, which will be used to purchase supplies for the care packages and/or used for the cost of shipping the boxes to Chaplain Seifert. 

The boxes we are using for the care packages are quite small, so please keep that in mind when selecting items for the boxes. 

PLEASE NO HOMEMADE ITEMS. These boxes will be given out over time, and the homemade items will perish.
