This project would be great for kids a minimum of 6 years old with a parent or other volunteer to supervise them.
We also encourage teenagers and young adults to join. It would be very special if the notes included in the bags were from a person of a similar age to those served by Stand Up For Kids.
Join us this Community Serve Day as we put together "Love in a Paper Sack" bags for Oceanside and San Diego Stand Up for Kids, ages 13 to 25. The bags are a "gift" meant to encourage and lift spirits. Stand Up For Kids receives plenty of donations of clothes, food and toiletries, so the purpose of Love in a Paper Sack is unique. It is to provide emotional support, love, and caring through a special GIFT to lift spirits during difficult times. Each bag contains items that connect, nourish and nurture.
At CSD we will affix the labels to the "Love in a Paper Sack" bags and to the homemade granola bars, pack the bags with the items provided and finish each bag with tissue paper and a ribbon. Also, bring along your ideas and thoughts for words of inspiration and encouragement to pass on to the kids in a personalized note that will be included in each "Love in a Paper Sack"..
The Site Leader will then deliver the bags to Stand Up for Kids in Oceanside and San Diego.
Minimum age is 6 (high school and college students are especially appreciated!)
Also, bring along your ideas and thoughts for words of inspiration and encouragement to pass on to the kids in a personalized note that will be included in each "Love in a Paper Sack".
