Salvation Army Goody Bag Filler Collection

Message from Kellie Witenko, Service Coordinator:

At each of the April MOMSnext meetings we will be collecting items to fill goody bags that will then be shared with the children staying at the Salvation Army shelter during the shelter’s monthly birthday celebration. At the end of the April 21st meeting, our group will fill the baggies to prepare them for delivery.

Here’s the email from Debby, my contact, so you can see her input about the age-range and items suggested…

“This is wonderful news and I am so appreciative of all that you are doing.  I think your offer of wanting to take on a whole party is great!  Occasionally we have had a girl scout troop plan and bring in the party and that has worked very well for a change of pace.  We have a few guidelines that we follow in order to make it fun for everyone, so if you decide to do this, we can discuss the specifics later.

We have all ages of kids at the shelter, pretty evenly spaced from newborn – teen.  Sometimes I will do 2 separate treat bags – one for pre-school and one for elementary age (the teens seem fine with this one as well!).  We try to stay away from food items, except for small boxes of raisins or fruit chews.  Some items that work well are: small toys, erasers, pencils, bookmarks, activity books, crayons, bubbles, parachutes, friendship bracelets, stickers. Or, use your imagination!  Thank you so much for doing this!”
