At Come Closer we partner with local organisations to provide blessing parcels. The agencies include MK Act, MK Storehouse, MK Money Lifeline, and other agencies. The ‘everyday’ blessing parcels are designed to include essential hygiene items that an individual requires. However, at Christmas time, we put together additional luxury products, including makeup, hand creams, body spray, jewellery and other small gifts.
Christmas Blessing Packages 2020
This year we will not be doing our usual packaging evening due to COVID restrictions. Instead, a small team will package the items together. However, we still want you to be involved!
Here are some ways you can help:
Send a Message: We would love for you to send us a blessing message, which we can print out and pop into some of the parcels. You can send your message to firstname.lastname@example.org
Purchase items: You can purchase items from the Christmas Blessing parcel shopping list (download above). You will then need to contact Emma to find out a local drop off point and date so that we can ensure social distancing.
Purchase a voucher. As social distancing makes things a bit more tricky, you have the option to purchase a voucher for a store that sells the items we need. We suggest shops like Boots, Wilko, Superdrug etc who sell lovely toiletries. The vouchers can be sent to our Blessing email address: email@example.com
A monetary gift: Please use our Just Giving page
WE WILL NEED THE PURCHASED ITEMS & MESSAGES BY WEDNESDAY 25TH NOVEMBER
Note: for MK Act we also include a special gift along with lovely beauty/cleansing products. For Women and Teen girls, each parcel includes a piece of sterling silver jewellery. For Teen boys, each parcel includes a set of headphones.
