At Come Closer we partner with local organisations to provide blessing parcels. This is both at Christmas time and throughout the year. The blessing parcels are designed to include essential hygiene items that an individual requires, and at Christmas time, some are luxury type of products, including makeup, jewellery and other small gifts.
Everyday Blessing Parcels
Come Closer has the absolute privilege of supporting MK Storehouse (www.mkstorehouse.org ). Our ‘Everyday’ Blessing Parcels, are gifted to MK Storehouse. In turn these are distributed to their clients. If you have not heard of MK Storehouse before, click the link to find out more.
Our ‘Everyday’ Blessing Parcels include toiletries and product essentials for men and women. So, we get to do this small but helpful part together. Isn’t that wonderful?
By clicking on the link below is a shopping list of what it in each parcel.
To donate, either bring to a Come Closer meeting or join us on one of our packaging mornings (see below). Alternatively text/phone Emma Beaney on 07715382958 / email firstname.lastname@example.org
We will periodically be having Saturday morning packaging mornings, where we get to come together and ensure that each parcel is wrapped up with care and made ready to be gifted.
The next packaging morning is on:
Saturday 10th Feb from 9:30am
Venue: Netherfield Chapel, Broadlands, Netherfield, Milton Keynes, MK6 4YP.
So, pop the date in your diary and feel free to bring a friend. Teenagers welcome (accompanied by an adult).
As always, please feel free to pass the invitation along… It’s really not a secret and we would love you to get others involved in this
