umns10_526_1_lightbox

First Baptist has adopted a deployed Chaplain!  Our current Chaplain is overseeing a group of 295 male and 5 female soldiers.  Our goal is to send one care package/month!  Donations are needed.  There is a Rubbermaid tub in the foyer for donations.  Most requested items are:

  • Decks of playing cards
  • Card games
  • DVDs (used and new)
  • Books (used and new)
  • Peanuts
  • Beef Jerky
  • Hard candies
  • Dryer sheets
  • Toothbrushes
  • Female toiletry items
  • Hand/body lotions
  • Bars of soap
  • Blank greeting cards to send home to family
  • Drink packets (Crystal Light powder/Propel powder/Hawaiian Punch for examples)

Our current Chaplain’s name is David.  He is married with two children, a boy and a girl.  If you want to help, but don’t want to donate items, money donated for postage is also welcomed!  A check with Chaplain on the memo line or an envelope with the word Chaplain will tell us the purpose of the money.  Thank you for your ongoing support!
