IT'S ANGEL TIME AGAIN
Once again, the Packer community is participating in the "Angel Tree Project" in cooperation with the Brownsville Brooklyn Salvation Army Community Center. We provide holiday gifts for children in the Brownsville neighborhood who receive services at this community center.
The way it works: we receive "Angel Cards" from the community center, each of which represent a child who either goes to pre-school at this community center, or receive services there. Each card gives the age and gender of the child.
We encourage you to take a card (or two) and buy an appropriate gift with a suggested value of $20 - $30. Then, all you have to do is bring the gift, along with the Angel Card, back to Packer and we will bring all the gifts to Brownsville for distribution to the kids there.
We will be distributing the "Angel Cards" starting on Monday, November 27th. Please come to Packer's front hall during drop off (from 8:00 - 9:15 am) to pick up a card. Bring the unwrapped gifts back to Packer on December 11th, 12th or 13th. We will be collecting the gifts from 8 - 9:15 am on these mornings and then driving them directly out to Brownsville.
Often it is nice to take a card with a child whose age matches your own child(ren). Your children can then help choose the gift, participating in the season's spirit of giving.
A child who might otherwise not have received anything this Holiday season, will have something special from you
Thank you for being an angel!
