Cards and Candy for Our Troops

We are collecting Halloween cards and candy to send to wounded troops in Afghanistan. Packets of Halloween cards are available in the basket on the bench outside the sanctuary building on October 3 and 4 for you to pick up and take home to sign. You may also provide your own cards (make sure “Happy Halloween” is written on the front of each envelope).

Note: For security reasons, DO NOT include your return address.

Also, if you are able, please purchase a bag or two of Halloween candy (the “Fun Size” are ideal). Candy and your signed cards must be returned to the church by Sunday, October 18. Thank you for supporting this special mission.
