The idea and project began with GC member, Sandra Sypher and her “Peaceable Class.” Your participation and response are appreciated. The following information was included in flyers sent home from the three elementary schools in Lemon Grove – Monte Vernon, San Altos, and San Miguel.
This is our opportunity to assist our community with the “Peaceable Packages” project.
The following is a list of items that can be used:
New or gently-used clean blankets/quilts,
New sweatshirt - XL ,
Glad white handle tie bags,
Decks of playing cards,
Bars of soap and shampoo – hotel size,
Large trash/leaf bags to be used as rain gear,
Purse-size tissue package, and,
Books to establish shelter libraries
Toothpaste and toothbrushes
Cash or checks are used to fill in the necessary items not donated.
The purpose of the “Peaceable Packages” is to warm the receivers on the outside as well as the inside. The items listed above warm the outside. A letter, written by each third/fourth/fifth grade student will be enclosed in every package and will warm the inside of the receiver and touch their hearts.
