Each year, C3 Carlingford organises, packs and sends over 4000 gifts to orphaned children living in Sri Lanka. Often this is the only gift each child will receive all year, and includes clothing, underwear, toiletries and personal items, writing materials and toys. This is a very special way that we can share the love of Christ, and we would love to invite you to get involved!
In order to send all these gifts, we hold packing days where each gift is packed and a card is written with each child’s name on it.
The Packing Days for 2016 will be held on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th October, with a special set up day on Thursday 6th October:
Thursday 6th – Set Up Day, 9.30am at the Minsitry Centre
Thursday 6th -Set Up Day, 9.30am-12.30pm at Carlingford High School Hall.
Friday 7th – Pre Packing Day: organising gifts, 9.30am – 12.00pm at Carlingford High School Hall.
Saturday 8th – Packing Day, 9.30am till late afternoon. Includes free sausage sizzle for all volunteers!
We are also collecting bars of new, wrapped soap to send with the gifts, and you can get involved by bringing bars of soap to the 9.30am & 6pm services at church this week!
