PARENTS COLLEGE CARE PACKAGE
Once your child
graduates from High School it seems that you may loose track of parents
that you have become friends with over the years. So why not
gather them all together and do a care package exchange. Step One:
Email parents to see who would like to be involved. Step Two:
Select a date, time and location to meet. Step Three: Make one
person responsible for purchasing the items (i.e. baskets, boxes,
stockings etc..), cellophane paper, and ribbon to hold all of the
goodies (share this cost). Step Four: Select a theme and set a
dollar amount. Step Five: Everyone decides on an item or two for
the basket and then goes out and purchases enough for each person
involved. For example if there are 6 parents involved then
purchase 6 of each item. Step Six: Meet at designated place
and time to put the baskets together. Step Seven: Mail them off to
your college kids!!!! Step Eight: Do it on a routine basis.
