Please bring your shoebox to church by Sunday, November

HOW TO PACK A SHOEBOX
(Click HERE to print an instruction sheet with
1. SHOEBOX: Use an empty shoebox (standard
size, please) or a small plastic container. You can wrap the box
(lid separately), but wrapping is not required. Most importantly,
pray for the child who will receive your gift.
2. BOY OR GIRL: Determine whether your gift
will be for a boy or a girl, and the child's age category: 2-4,
5-9, or 10-14. Print out the appropriate boy/girl label by
downloading the artwork below. Mark the correct age category on the
label, and tape the label to the top of your box.
3. FILL WITH GIFTS: Fill the box with a variety
of gifts that will bring delight to a child. See
suggest list below.
4. INCLUDE $7 DONATION: Please donate $7 or
more for each shoebox you prepare to help cover shipping and other
project costs. You can give online by using our "Follow Your Box
Donation" option, or you can write a check to Samaritan's Purse
(note "OCC" on memo line) and place it in an envelope on top of the
gift items inside your shoebox. If you or your family are preparing
more than one shoebox, please make one combined donation.
5. Drop Off: Place a rubber band around each
closed shoebox and bring it to the church by November 22.
