Christmas Boxes for First Responders

Hello Bear Family! Our traditional Christmas service event is to fill a big basket with treats, supplies, etc. and deliver the baskets to our first responders at the Whitehouse Fire station and Police Station.  I have two laundry baskets ready to stuff with bright holiday tissue and ALLLL the treats.  As you are shopping for your family over the weekend, keep in mind we are filling 2 baskets and think about snacks or other items that our first responders might be glad to have especially when they are working late and all stores are closed!! Items to consider – Lip Balm (Chapstick, Burt's Bees), black ink pens ( officers I know at TJC say they are always running out of these), small spiral-bound note pads,…
