It’s a new school year and time to purge and update our TLC college student data base. Because many of our student’s have graduated and/or have embarked on new adventures, we are asking everyone to provide your or your student’s college/university mailing address and current status for Fall 2017. As soon as you can, please CLICK HERE to update your son or daughter’s information.
Save the date for September 25 and start gathering the goodies! That’s when TOUCHING LIVES IN COLLEGE meets to build another mailing for our FUMC Allen college students. On that date, parents and friends meet in Base Camp (upstairs in the Children’s Wing) from 7:00pm-8:30pm to set up the tables, sort gifts, and work in assembly line fashion to make packages ready for mailing.
We’ll also start collecting note cards of encouragement that we will mail before final exams. If you are able, please pick up one or two a $5 Starbucks or Sonic gift cards for us to include with the notes.
TLC welcomes donations and snacks not only from parents but also from members and visitors who want to share encouragement to our young adults away from home preparing for midterms and finals. Our supporters are also welcome to join the group for the September assembly.
We will also accept monetary donations to cover the cost of shipping the boxes.
