SHOEBOX MINISTRY

THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
Specific items to bring are over for the year at this point.

We will continue to have our packing party toward the end of the year. In the meantime, we are collecting packed shoeboxes throughout the year. Anytime you can, we encourage you to bring a packed shoebox.
*Start with an average-size cardboard or plastic shoebox. If you want to wrap it, cover the box and lid separately.
*Decide whether you will pack a box for a girl or a boy, and the age category: 2–4, 5–9, or 10–14.
*Select a medium to large “wow” item such as a soccer ball with pump or stuffed animal, then fill with other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies.
*Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.
