- Colored pencils and thin markers in sets of 10, 12 or 20
- Wrapped candy like Snickers, Lindt Chocolates or peppermints (soft chew, not hard)
- Magazines like: Health/Nutrition for Seniors, Life, National Geographic, Medical Journals, Military

- Daily devotion books with large print
These items may be dropped off inside the Main Entrance at New Life North (11025 Voyager Parkway Colorado Springs, CO 80921) from 9am to 2pm, Monday through Thursday. The items will then be sorted and distributed to our local partners.
Through your regular tithes & offerings, we are continuing to provide direct financial assistance to families through our benevolence ministry. You can mail financial gifts to New Life Church (11025 Voyager Parkway, Colorado Springs, CO 80921) or give online through this link.
