The Collegiate Hearts Program

is sponsored by the Newark Church of Christ –Youth Committee.  The purpose of this program is to provide on-going spiritual encouragement to our college students (both home and away).  This program provides boxes which contain school supplies, toiletries,
non-perishable food items, church bulletin, etc. We will be sending these “care packages” in October. Therefore, we are asking for monetary donations and cards of encouragement for our students. We are asking each family to write one card of encouragement to a student.  Your spiritual words of encouragement would be so inspirational to our students. The deadline is Sunday-September 10th.  Please see Sis. Mimi Toney.
