Please consider once again contributing to Christmas Care Packages by donating toiletries to new refugee arrivals in need. Since 2002 Immanuel has worked with Lutheran Social Services to help sponsor and care for 3 refugee families. This will be our 4th year extending our help into the community to refugee newcomers, for whom no sponsors could be found. Facing the "culture shock" of their Wisconsin Winter and struggling to make the transition to a new life in America, these families face so many more difficulties than those blessed with church support. the Seider ChristCare group is hoping other will join them to brighten their Christmas with holiday welcome packages that include the following items:

Paper Products: toilet paper, paper towel
Toiletries: shampoo, bar or soft soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, mouthwash, moisturizer/hand cream, deodrant, lip moisturizer
Cleaning supplies: sponges, dust pan/ hand broom, liquid dish soup, laundry soap, cleanser (comet, soft scrub) bathroom cleanser/disubfectant)
medicine: tylenol, children's tylenol, children's vitamins, children's cough syrup, neosporin, band aids
misc.L fingernail scissors, nail clippers, gently used suitcases, duffel bags
