Gift Boxes for Town Employees

The artwork that the children created is ready to decorate the tops of the boxes that you will deliver to local town employees. You can choose to either print your own artwork and attach it to the box yourself, or if it is more convenient, you may pick up the artwork at New Hope Christian Fellowship.

Suggestions for gift boxes:

Homemade

Get your child involved and bake up some of your favorite sweets. Cookies and cakes are always appreciated. Rice-krispie treats have an easy recipe that kids can make in the microwave without much adult assistance. *Note: it is much easier to share if treats are wrapped in individual serving sizes.


Thanks a million

Let the employees know just how much you appreciate their service by allowing your child to truly be a “kid in a candy store” when they pick out candies to fill their box. Be sure to including treats like Hundred Grand candy bars, chocolate coins, and candies wrapped in gold foil such as Worther’s Originals.


Healthy

Treat boxes don’t necessarily mean junk food. Healthy treats are appreciated too. Take your child with you to the produce section and allow them to choose their favorite fruits, and nuts. Add a few granola bars and a handwritten note of thanks.


There are lots of places to choose from for delivery sites. Consider visiting your town dump, the library, fire station, police, town offices, the department of transportation (they keep your roads plowed), or any other public office.

Enjoy!
