Kids Make Care Packages For Christ’s Table

Over 100 packages were put together by kids from the Zanesville Civic League for the dining room guests at Christ’s Table. They spent their Thursday morning filling care packages with toothbrushes, toothpaste and lotions.

"Everyone is so excited. Not just to get their care packages, but to see the youth in our community stepping up and doing something," said Keely Warden, Executive Director of Christ’s Table. "And this is such a wonderful community project because the local Holiday Inn Express donates the shampoo and the creams and the body wash and the kids at the Zanesville Civic League put them together."

Warden says the packages were gone in a matter of minutes and that next year, they’ll plan on making more.

"We also put little notes in them that said whatever we wanted to put on them," said Kenzi Edwards-Suttles, who helped put the care packages together. "But we put those in them and some of them had two and they really enjoyed them."

Kenzi and the other kids say they wanted to make the care packages because it’s the right thing to do and because it makes people feel good.
