Fjeldberg Lutheran Church in Huxley is accepting donations from the public for the care packages it will soon put together for homeless teens.

From now until Nov. 12, area residents are asked to bring donations to the Fjeldberg sanctuary on Sundays or to the church office on other days. Donations needed include warm clothing, like coats, hats, gloves and thick socks; blankets; hand and foot warmers; snack foods; quarters; lighters; lights; batteries and personal hygiene items.

All donations will be used to make winter survival kits for homeless teenagers in Des Moines.
