In addition to the list below and any other items you feel someone might enjoy, we need shoe boxes for packing the care packages in.
Care Package idea list. All items need to fit in a shoe box. These are not hygiene boxes alone. What is really needed are items like these.
- candy bars
- individually wrapped snacks
- deck of cards
- games for small children
-small pads of paper or small coloring books
- lip balm
- bandaids/first aid items
-feminine hygiene products
-really anything else. The man suggested thinking of things you might sent to military over seas. We can personalize the packages as much as we want. Ask your kids what they want to include. Think of these as little gift boxes. What would brighten your day?
The gentleman I spoke with recommended not adding bottled water because the packages might be delivered in cold months and the water would just be frozen anyways.
We will also be creating cards and pictures or personal notes to add to each care package.
