We require special bins in which to pack Family to Family items (information on these bins can be found here). These new bins will alleviate packages that have been crushed when sent in the past. There will also be a weight limit of 40 lbs. per bin. Feel free to pack two bins if you are over 40 lbs. 

The cost to ship a Family to Family bin is $10 each, necessary to help defray the cost of shipping the container. Payment is due at the time of bin drop off and should be placed in an envelope with your name and FAMILY to FAMILY #, with a second copy of a completed inventory form, lightly taped to the outside of your bin. Checks can be made payable to St. Anthony on the Lake.

The 2-part Inventory form can be cut in half. One should be securely taped to the outside of your bin and the second lightly taped so we can pull it off for inventorying. No need to tape the bins shut; they will be wire-tied in the corners when dropped off at the parish.
(You can find the Inventory Form here.)
