11th Annual Priceless Toy Box

We are once again collecting new and gently used toys for this program.  This mission is located in Jackson, MI.  It allows parents to shop for Christmas gifts to give their children.  Without this program, these children would NOT have a blessed Christmas.  We are also collecting personal care products for family gift bags; shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, soap, deodorant, dental floss, toothbrushes/paste, washcloths, shavers, lotions etc.  Also Ziploc bags of all sizes, batteries, baby wipes and Mr. Clean erasers.  In November we will be going and helping at this mission like we have in previous years.  There is a “Toy Box” in the overflow area to collect the toys and other items.  If you have any questions, please see Sue Eversole.
