Wesley will once again be hosting the Holiday Gift Bag project for the women incarcerated at the Central California Women’s Facility near Chowchilla. We had an incredibly successful project last year, and were able to deliver 3000 gift bags each filled with 20 small items. We hope to do the same this year.
Packing day is Saturday, December 7th in John Wesley Hall. Mark your calendars!
Please start gathering gift items for the bags. Donated items may be left in the church office. Due to very strict prison rules, we are able to use only the items on the approved list.
Examples of items on the list include:
- Greeting cards (7.5”x6.5” or smaller, no glitter or glued on items)
- Picture postcards Scratch pads (5’x7’ or smaller, no sticky notes)
- Pencils or pens (no clickers)
- Personal items: (stick type lip balm, indiv. packaged toothbrushes, 2 oz or smaller toothpaste, combs (no rat-tails), tissue packets, 2 oz or less soaps, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, lotion Individual packets of hot chocolate or coffee
