Reverse Advent Calendar: a Great New Tradition!

Ever wonder what a “Reverse Advent Calendar” is? With a traditional Advent Calendar, for each day of Advent (the time before Christmas), the opening of a calendar day reveals a small gift or prize. With a Reverse Advent Calendar, on each day of Advent, instead of receiving a gift, something is donated into a box or bag. SLM collects these items into our Reverse Advent Bags and uses them in our Food Pantry and Personal Needs Closet. This is a great group activity for a family, an office, a church group, a classroom, or individuals. At Grace UMC, the collected, filled bags are given and celebrated as “birthday presents to Jesus” on Christmas Eve. Contact SLM if you’d like bags to fill and give to us. Suggested items can be found at the dollar stores and might include:

PERSONAL NEEDS

Toothbrushes /toothpaste

Deodorant/razors

Shampoo/conditioner

Sanitary products
