Christmas Care Packages for Memphis Union Mission

Ed MellNewsLeave a Comment

Immanuel is excited about being able to help meet some of the physical and spiritual needs of men in the alcohol and drug recovery programs at the Memphis Union Mission this Christmas – and we need your help to do this.  We want to provide Christmas Care Packages to 30 men whose lives are invested in these programs where the emphasis is on healing, recovery, and preparation for successful living built on the foundation of Jesus Christ.

It would be great if groups or individuals could help complete Christmas Care Packages by providing the items needed below.  You can take ornaments (representing needed items) from the Christmas trees in the church lobby.  Your donated items can be left under these Christmas trees in the church lobby by no later than Sunday, December 11.  Please do not gift wrap your items.  With the help of our LWML and Women of the Word groups, Immanuel will ensure the care items are sorted, packaged, and gift wrapped in containers that will be provided.  Immanuel will include Bibles and candy and deliver the Christmas Care Packages to the Memphis Union Mission.

The items needed for each man’s Christmas Care Package include: 1 pair gloves, 1 winter knit cap, 3 pair crew socks (choose size 9-12 or 10-13), 3 pair underwear (choose medium, large, or x-large size), 1 toothbrush (regular size), 1 toothpaste (regular size), 1 comb, 1 bar soap (regular size), 1 stick deodorant, $10 gift card to Walmart.  Please provide only these items.  Your help is very much appreciated!  Please contact Ed Mell (; 849-2751) if you have any questions.
