Naturalization Ceremony Gift Bags

The Chamber is collecting items from our members and the community to create a gift bag for our newest citizen's who will be sworn in this June.
We are trying to build 100 bags. So if you have giveaway items, maketing items, free or discount coupons we would be glad to include.
Our great Chamber member Comcast has agreed to donate the bags we will be utilizing.
What do you have to give?????
