BLESSING BAGS


These one-gallon bags filled with personal-size items are donated to children and families in need  from the Selbyville Middle School.  The Selbyville Police Department officers have also requested bags to carry in their patrol cars when they go out on domestic abuse calls to use a s a peace offering to help calm the waters.


Ten-cent reusable bags are available from local grocery stores into which the one-gallon bags can be placed. They’re easy to carry and won’t draw attention to the person carrying them; plus, they can add other items to the bag.


If you want to participate in this ministry, please place donations into the Blessing Bags bin in Memorial Hall. All supplies can be purchased at the Dollar Tree where everything truly is only $1.00. Please refer to the following list of needed items. Thank you for your generosity.  If you cannot donate all of the items on the list please consider choosing just a few.
