Packing Military ‘goodie’ Boxes – Sunday, October 15th – 9:30am

Would you like to honor our congregational members who are deployed and U.S. military personnel who serve around the world? On Sunday, October 15, 2023, Ziegels Union Church will celebrate National Day of the Deployed by packing military “goodie” boxes for the US Servicemen and Servicewoman who serve outside of our country.

If you are interested in assisting with this worthy activity, there are several ways you may help. From Sept. 3, 2023 to Oct. 8, 2023, a collection box will be outside the church office for “goodie” donations that you would like to donate so we can fill our boxes. The “goodie” donation wish list includes snack bars, cheese crackers, candy ( no chocolate), plastic jars of peanut butter, instant mac and cheese, individual snack bags, licorice, nuts, trail mix, Ramen noodles, flavoring packets for water, beef jerky, toothbrushes and paste, lip balm, lotions, word puzzles, stationery, playing cards, “cardboard” air fresheners, envelopes, etc.

If you would like to help pack the boxes, please come to the Fellowship room after the U.C.C. service (approx. 9:30am) on Oct. 15, 2023. If you would like to make a monetary donation for us to either purchase items on the “goodie” wish list or to help cover shipping costs, please see, or contact Bonnie Millward (610-533-8404) by Oct. 1, 2023. After the boxes are packed, they will be taken to Keystone Military Families in Shoemakersville, PA. This organization will send them to the deployed military personnel. If you have a family member who is currently serving outside the U.S., please contact Bonnie Millward so we can be sure they receive a “goodie” box from Ziegels Union Church! Thank you, in advance, for your support!!!
