The students at Mansfield Middle School are currently preparing care packages to mail to our active military over seas. If you would like to help with this, please send the items to school with your child. If each student were to donate one or two items, it could help fill the boxes.
Travel size: toiletries, toothbrush, paste, floss, cotton swabs, razors, lip balm, baby wipes
Baggies, hand warmers, sunglasses, cotton socks (100% cotton not cotton blend, fingerless gloves, hats, reading material, AA or D batteries, disposable camera, phone cards, Frisbees, foam basketballs, hacky sacks, cards, yo-yos, reading material, crossword puzzles
Power drinks, meal enhancers (individual, salt, ketchup, mustard, relish, hot sauce), quick protein (energy bars, beef jerky, summer sausage)
Snacks (chips, pretzels, nuts)
Candy/gum (no chocolate that could melt)
With each box costing $16.75 to mail, you could donate to help with postage, if in case you’re unable to find time to provide the above mentioned items, or you could sponsor a box yourself. Students are also allowed, and encouraged to decorate their sponsored box, as well as make cards for the care packages.
For more information, or to receive your box, please contact Renea Bryan, MMS Business Teacher, or Kasi Carter, Literacy Lab Teacher, who can help with further instructions, and to provide the sponsor box.
Carter stated, “We appreciate any and all support we receive, and I know the soldiers do too!”
