WITH OUR CURRENT WORLD SITUATION

WE HAVE SOME NEW OPTIONS FOR SHOEBOXES THIS YEAR.

WE HAVE AN ABBREVIATED SHOPPING LIST.

The following being our priority: pencils, pencil sharpener's, erasers, crayons, paper, toothbrushes, washcloths, bath soap. We will gladly continue to accept and use all items purchased.

If you feel comfortable going out and shopping yourself that is fine.

UPDATED JULY 30, 2020

GOAL: Our goal this year is 18 shoeboxes per age group. Our age groups are girls: 2-3, 5-9, and 10-14 and boys: 2-3, 5-9, and 10-14.

If we reach our goad, that will be a total of 108 shoeboxes. These shoeboxes will be used to share the love of Jesus with children around the world.

Please PRAY each day for the shoebox recipients, their families, and their communities. Also, please be in prayer over each step as we prepare each box to be sent our, from the packing to the processing and delivery.

NEW EMPHASIS: Our new emphasis items for 2020 are socks, spoons and forks.

BOOKS: We would love to continue placing a brand new book in each shoebox! Hard back or paper back books will be great if they fit within the dimensions of the box. (Listed at the bottom of the page).
