- PACKING A SHOEBOX! -


Shoebox gifts are a great way to share The Love of God and bless a child who may not receive a gift for Christmas.


Each shoebox gift requires a $9 donation for collecting, processing, shipping, etc. When you give your donation, you will receive a shipping label to go on your shoebox. You can either give your donation to receive your label at the church office or you can purchase and print yours online here: https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/follow-your-box/


1. Find a shoebox. Start with an average-size cardboard or plastic shoebox. If you want to wrap it, cover the box and lid separately.


2. Girl or Boy? Decide whether you will pack a box for a girl or a boy, and the age category: 2–4, 5–9, or 10–14.


3. Fill with gifts. 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.


4. Pray. Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.


5. Follow Your Box. Donate $9 online and receive a label to Follow Your Box and discover the destination of your shoebox gift.


6. Drop-Off. You can take your shoebox gift to the church office and we will take them to a local drop-off location during National Collection Week,

Nov. 18–25, 2019. Remember, last day to turn them in to the office will be Nov. 17!

​Let's work together to share God's Love and bless children in need!
