CHILDREN'S HOME NEEDS CANNING JARS
 
The United Methodist Home for Children needs pint, quart, and 2-quart canning jars, which will be used for a Christmas gift project for the kids to make gifts for their families and friends. The jars can be new or used, and wide or regular mouth. Rings and sealing lids for all the sizes would be helpful, but not necessary.
 
For your convenience, a Children's Home staff member is willing to pick up the jars within a 25-30 mile radius.
 
Due to limited storage space, please call Kim Hanford, Development Manager, at 717.766.7652 prior to donating any jars, or if pickup arrangements are needed. The kids and staff of the Children's Home appreciate your help with this project!
