M & M tubes can be returned anytime before the GAiN team goes to the Warehouse on June 16.  Quarters in these tubes will cover the cost of rice, beans, and seeds packed by God’s Girls and all who go along on June 16th.  Drop off your filled M & M tubes at the Information Desk or pick up an empty one if you would like to participate.   If you are age 7 and older you are invited to go along on the GAiN trip.  This is a great activity for families as younger children need to be accompanied by a parent.  There is a sign-up on the ramp bulletin board.
