Adoption requirements are: send a care package to the student postmarked no later than April 18th, to help students prepare for finals week. Care Packages must include: goodies (store bought or homemade), a letter from Pastor Emery (just ask Denise for a copy), and a note of encouragement from you. Optional items: gift card to a fast food restaurant (for a late study night snack run), and something fun (toy, game, etc.). (We actually have a few silly things in the office that you might want to use). Name choices will be given by random selection and can remain anonymous if you so choose.

If interested, please contact Pastor Emery or Denise and they will give you the student's name and mailing information.
