Every Year we have the opportunity to bless children the world over!
It's time to start putting your boxes together again & getting ready for collections. You can prepare your own box if you desire. Brochures on packing shoeboxes and lists of item are on the table in the church foyer. We are also collecting specific items for shoebox gifts. They can be placed in a special box in the church foyer. Our first collection for school supplies is from now until September 11. See the list below for ideas. Collections will be placed in the shoeboxes at the packing party. This is an opportunity for you to pitch in if you want. Anyone can still pack their own boxes instead of or in addition to bringing items for the packing party. The next collections will be in the coming weeks for personal items and then toys/WOW items.
See collection dates below:
Sunday, Sept 11 - Collection deadline for school supplies.
Sunday, Oct 30 - Collection Deadline for personal items.
Wednesday, Nov 16th - Corporate prayer of blessing over boxes & recipients.
Thursday, Nov 17th - Last day to drop off your box b4 they are delivered.
