Help welcome a large group of new international students to Wichita Falls and MSU by filling baskets with items that will help them get setting in their dorm room or apartment.

Together with our friends from First Presbyterian Church, City Hope, Park Place Christian Church, and Grace Church, we will be providing 150 welcome baskets.

These items will be distributed on Thursday, August 24, following Orientation.  But between now and then, you can start filling a basket.  You will find laundry baskets with item lists In the Narthex, the Chapel entryway, and the Church Office. Pick up one of these baskets today and begin filling it today (but do not return your baskets until after July 14).

This is a great project to do as a family, or with another family, or with your small group or Sunday School class.
