HUUGS for Young Adults

Dec 24, 2022 | Beacon, News, RE-Flections

Drop off in the Sanctuary Foyer January-February 12

Please join in creating care packages to send to young, emerging adults who are a part of East Shore and our extended family. During our February 12th Love is Our Covenant worship, we will have a packing party to make and decorate Emerging Adult Boxes.

Please bring caring items to contribute! Handmade or small items are welcome. There will be a box in the Sanctuary Foyer labeled “HUUGS: Emerging Adult Care Packages.”

For ideas, here’s a couple things we’ve sent in the past. We typically send out 15 packages and try to make them as similar as possible. Handmade/homemade things are always appreciated, too!

  • a chalice – Altoid (tin) boxes needed
  • Snack treats
  • coloring book
  • stickers
  • a UU book
  • bookmark
  • a way to connect with the church
  • Playing cards
  • A stress ball
  • Soap
  • A candle
  • Starbucks or iTunes $5
  • Tea
  • Condoms
  • Comfy socks
  • Bath stuff
  • Valentine’s candy
  • And a card to write a note in

Do you have a young adult in your life, either already in the East Shore family, or perhaps in our extended family, that could use a little HUUG? Send us their name and address and we’ll do just that!
