Planning for Christmas 2016
Greetings from the Arizona Phoenix Mission. As we approach the holidays, we're mindful that every one of our missionaries needs to be remembered at Christmas. We're hoping each missionary receives something from home for the holidays.
Items can be sent to the mission office - Arizona Phoenix Mission: 6833 W Bell Rd Glendale, AZ 85308. (phone 623-334-3823). Items arriving before Dec. 5th can be delivered at several special mission Christmas conferences. Items arriving after that can be delivered through zone leaders. The closer an item arrives to Dec. 25, the less likely it can be delivered by Christmas Day. We will make every effort to get packages out to your missionaries!
We have office staff receiving deliveries on weekdays during business hours. This is a safe location to send items of importance and value. Some items sent directly to missionary apartments or residences in the past have been lost, misplaced or stolen when merely delivered and left outside a front door or dropped off at an apartment office.
With more than 170 missionaries receiving packages from multiple family members and friends, please understand we can't track or confirm receipt of any one specific mailing or shipment.
AND PLEASE PUT THEIR FULL NAME ON THE PACKAGES!!! We always have duplicate last names!!
In the past, some missionary families have asked how they can be helpful to other missionaries serving in the Arizona Phoenix Mission. Please feel free to contact Sister Griffin — through the mission office — for specific ideas or opportunities. We can ALWAYS use gift cards to places like Penneys or Target or WalMart to purchase basic items that missionaries need! Those can be sent to President and Sister Griffin c/o the Mission Office. We thank you for remembering missionaries at Christmas!
Sometimes our missionaries' parents are nonmembers and we're asked to not directly contact them. If you are in communication with such parents and think they might welcome this opportunity to send something, please forward them this information.
