Bashgiving Service Project to Benefit PADS

Please join us on Wednesday, November 20, 6:30pm, for our annual BASHGIVING, hosted by GCov Kids@Night and Jr League. We will begin in the Family Life Center at 6:30pm with pumpkin pie (and whipped cream, of course!). From 6:50-7:35, everyone is invited to participate in packing Christmas goody bags for PADS clients in Munson Hall, join in the fun of seasonal games (like Turkey Bowling) in Pollock Gym, add to our Thankfulness board (chalkboard in atrium), and fellowship together. At 7:35, Kids@Night and Jr League will return to their large group meeting spaces for their regular closing/worship/story times and everyone else is welcome to join us or continue to fellowship in the atrium, or head back home.   

We need your help with donations, which may be delivered to the church by Tuesday, November 19. We need 80 each of the following individual personal care items: Chapstick/lip balm, hand warmers, hand cream, toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, socks, slipper socks, small notebooks, pens, tiny flashlights, ear plugs, sleep masks, gum, mints. (A full sign up for donations will be available on Sign Up Genius here).  Collection bins will be placed in Higher Grounds, Children’s Library, and The Ark Preschool hallway beginning November 3. On November 20, when you come to BASHGIVING, please also bring a nonperishable food or other household item for the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry. If you have any questions about the Service Project or BASHGIVING, please contact Judy Barg, Pam Powell, or Eliza Stiles.
