Keep In Touch With College Students and Members of the Military

The KIT (Keep In Touch) ministry is designed to reach young adults, mostly away from home, by mailing them care packages.  We hold four Saturday packing days per year.  Volunteers pack up care packages using items donated by members and friends of Immanuel.  We average 70 boxes each mailing. When buying items to donate, please take this number into consideration. All items must be in individual packaging. 

Donations can consist of any of the following:

• Microwave popcorn
• Gum
• Cookies
• Devotional materials
• Stickers
• Markers
• Post it notes
• Bookmarks
• Pencils/pens
• Sugar free throat lozenges
• Stress/therapy balls
• Hot cocoa packages
• Dried fruit
• Band-Aids

• Granola bars
• Candy
• Sunny D’s
• Rice Crispy Treats
• Twizzlers
• Slim Jims
• Cheez Its
• Tic Tacs
• Tootsie Pops
• Cereal
• Tea, coffee, or lemonade packets
• Pretzels
• Water bottles

Volunteers fill the boxes with what has been donated, tape them shut and put them on a table outside the church where our members pick them up after church service and mail them.

Donations can be turned in to the church office any time before the scheduled date or brought in on the two weekends before mailing and placed in the KIT box in Fellowship Hall. If you have any questions, please contact Deaconess Suzanne.  Thank you!
