Do your church members have difficulty remembering what goods are needed for special ministries? The "Bring-A-Bag Back" offering helps refresh their memories and boosts donations dramatically.
Attach labels with specific needs to some brown paper bags (sometimes grocery stores will donate these bags). Distribute the labeled bags at the worship service, and print right on the bag the date to return the items. Instruct the church or group members to return the filled bags by the prescribed date and watch the donations roll in. The following are suggested items for the labels.
EXAMPLE: NAPKINS, PAPER TOWELS, TOILET PAPER, TISSUE, BAR SOAP, LAUNDRY DETERGENT, DISH SOAP, CLEANSER, AND OTHER PAPER GOODS/CLEANING SUPPLIES.
EXAMPLE: YOUR GROUP COULD DECIDE TO CREATE A CLEANING PRODUCTS BAG. FILL A BOX OR BAG FULL OF DIFFERENT CLEANING SUPPLIES, SPONGES, PAPER TOWELS, AND THE LIKE.
EXAMPLE: YOUR GROUP COULD CHOOSE TO CREATE BAKING BAGS. FILL A BOX OR A BAG FULL OF BAKING SUPPLIES LIKE FLOUR, SUGAR, BAKING SODA, BAKING POWDER, ETC.
Please call the Love INC office when your drive has ended for instructions as to the best place to deliver your collected items or to request a pickup.
