Today was the day for assembling our blessing blitz packets. It was very important to me that this summer my kids and I do something to give back to the community as a demonstration of the love of Jesus. We were overwhelmed by the generosity of our community in supplying exactly what was needed to fill the packets. It was a hot and sweaty day, but we now have > 50 packets assembled! Each family that participated also received 2 packets to keep in their cars to hand out to anyone who may be in need.
Our packets contained:
travel size toothpaste
travel size sunscreen
protein (non-chocolate for the summer)
travel size tissues
single-size tuna packets
The kids also colored photos that we printed from the internet that we could include in the packet
It took 4 families about 45 minutes to assemble ~55 packets. What a quick process with such eager helpers! Here is what our assembly table looked like:
To organize the event, I created a sign-up genius via www.signupgenius.com
It was super simple!
We designed last Friday as our pick-up day where we drove to everyone’s house to pick up the donations. It was easier that way the items were organized prior to everyone showing up!
Here are the finished products. Stay tuned for our drop off day photos!
