A small group of students have organized a service project in Team Mission.  They are collecting items to donate to the Urbandale Care Facility (located by B-Bops and Fareway off Meredith and 86th) that can be given to residents.  They are collecting the following items:  word searches, adult coloring books, colored pencils, hand / body lotion, deck of cards, toothpaste and toothbrushes, chapstick, and markers.

Many of the items being collected can be purchased at Dollar Tree.

We are collecting donations from January 23rd to February 2nd.   All donations can be placed in the boxes in Team Mission.

Students in the service project group will travel to the facility on Thursday, February 9th.  They will visit with residents, play BINGO, and present the donations to the staff from Team Mission.

Thanks for your support!
