College Student Care Packages

For years, Bryn Athyn Church has been sending Valentine’s Day care packages to young people from Bryn Athyn Church community who are away at college. There has always been broad support for this program from the community and great appreciation from the recipients. In recent years, we have also sent smaller packages to college age students still in the Bryn Athyn area. Would you like to get involved in helping with this loving gesture this year? We will be sending the packages in just under a month!

There are many ways to help:

1. Please email the address of your current college student to Nina.Dewees@BrynAthynChurch.org BY FRIDAY, JANUARY 28, 2022.
PLEASE NOTE: Because of the fluid nature of college students’ lives, WE DO NOT KEEP ADDRESSES FROM YEAR TO YEAR. You need to send your child’s address each year. Tell your friends!
2. Bake homemade cookies. We need about 100 dozen. Please let Nina know approximately how many you will be making. They are needed by the second week in February.
3. Contribute money or some small thing (between 60-80 items) to enhance the packages or help with shipping costs.
4. Sign the homemade Valentines (COVID-allowing) after church on January 26 and February 2, or during the week at the Church Office.
5. Join us on packing day (date to be determined in early February) to enjoy an action-packed community time!
