Care Packages for Soldiers

Deployed United States military personnel spend Christmas far away from their homes and their family. They choose to put themselves in harm’s way in order to protect our liberties and freedoms. Let’s support them this Christmas by sending them care packages.

For the last seven years, Trietsch has provided deployed troops care packages that are delivered to them before Christmas. We have been told that our care packages are the only gifts many of the soldiers receive.

Below is a list of items requested for the care packages. Please bring these items to the Christmas Giving Centers in the Connection Center or Family Life Center (FLC) lobbies. The deadline is December 6. The ministry is also collecting funds to pay for mailing costs. 

For more information, contact Kelly Jones by email at kdgjones@yahoo.com or by phone at 972-978-3359.
